If so, you may be suffering from an excess of wax buildup in your ears. Understanding how having too much wax in your ears can impact your hearing is important in order to identify any wax buildup and take the necessary steps in maintaining healthy ears. Hearing loss can be a difficult situation to manage, especially when it is caused by excessive ear wax.

How Can Ear Wax Cause Hearing Loss?

Ear wax can cause hearing loss when it accumulates in our ear canal; it hardens and becomes impacted. When this happens, an earwax blockage starts to happen in our ears and this can block sound waves from reaching our eardrum. This can cause a decrease in our hearing, and make it difficult for us to hear and understand others properly. 

If your earwax is not removed, it can further build up and harden and lead to permanent hearing loss. As well as causing hearing loss, excessive ear wax build up can also cause a feeling of fullness or pressure in your ears, ear pain, and Tinnitus which can affect your day to day life. 

What Causes Ear Wax Build Up?

Ear wax is naturally produced by our ears, and is also known as Cerumen, and doesn’t tend to cause us any problems when produced in healthy amounts. It helps to keep our ears clean and protect them from infection, and is necessary for our ears to stay clean and safe. But sometimes unfortunately too much wax can build up in our ears, which is when it starts to cause us problems. Another common reason for excessive ear wax is by people cleaning their ears too frequently or too roughly, especially if you’re using cotton swabs or wearing ear buds regularly.
