Ear wax is usually harmless, and is there to protect our ears and keep them clean, but sometimes, ear wax can build up excessively and start to cause problems. If you’ve been feeling like your hearing isn’t as good as it used to be and feel your ears are constantly clogged up, or you’ve been experiencing pain in your ears then these could be signs that you’re suffering from an ear wax build-up that needs taking care of.

It can be tricky to know what signs to look out for that indicate that you might have an ear wax problem, and many people wait too long to get their ears checked which can lead to the problems getting worse. Here at The Hearing Hub, we are going to highlight when you should get your ear wax removed. For further information on our ear wax removal in the Rainham area, please visit our website today.  

Difficulty Hearing

One of the most common signs that people experience when they have an excessive build up of earwax in their ears is difficulty hearing. When ear wax accumulates in our ear canal, it can cause a blockage which reduces the amount of sound that is able to reach our eardrums. This can make it much harder for you to hear clearly, causing issues with understanding others, communication, and even when it comes to staying safe. If you leave excessive ear wax in your ears, your hearing can become worse so it’s best to have them professionally cleaned.

A Feeling of Fullness in Your Ears

When too much ear wax accumulates in your ear canal, it can also cause a feeling of fullness or blockage in our ears. Usually our ear wax is able to pass out of our ears harmlessly and doesn’t cause any issues, but when you develop an excessive build-up of wax it can start to give you that full or blocked feeling that just doesn’t go away. 

Many people make the mistake of trying to remove this feeling, usually using ear buds, but this actually makes it worse as it pushes your ear wax deeper into your ear canal. That feeling of fullness or your ears being clogged is due to a  build-up of wax that is blocking your ear canal, and the only way you’ll be able to remedy it is with professional ear wax removal.

Pain or Discomfort 

As well as hearing loss and a feeling of fullness, a buildup of wax can also cause many people pain or discomfort. When we have too much ear wax in your ears this can build up and harden, forming a plug that blocks our ear canal and can cause us pain. You might have a dull ache or sharp pains in your ears, or be experiencing itching or a ringing sound. 

None of us want to experience ear pain or ringing in our ears, and this can make it challenging to go about our normal lives. The pain you’re experiencing can be due to the wax being pushed up deep into your ear canal, and the only way to resolve this is by having your ear wax professionally removed to get rid of the issues.
