Earwax build-up is one of the most common conditions I see on a daily basis. This article from the Wall Street Journal gives an excellent overview of the “Good, Bad…. ( I would add) …the Pain and Hearing loss “ which can result from self–care ear cleaning techniques. I typically clean ears using my microscope for visualization along with a curette and suction. I see many patients for ear wax buildup due to the use of Q-tips. Mom’s advice of never putting anything smaller than your elbow is well heeded when it comes to cleaning ones ears themselves. Q-tips should not be used in the ear canal- it’s very easy to turn a nuisance of ear wax or ear itching into a blocked painful ear with decreased hearing. Some people just produce a lot of wax and need to come in for periodic ear cleaning. When patients comes to see me for hearing loss and the problem is earwax, it is very gratifying and a temporary source of hearing loss which resolves with a simple cleaning.
