Wax plugs

Specialty of Otolaringology

Dinner plugs are one of the most common causes of hearing loss. In a small number are beneficial because they protect the ear, preventing bacteria and other microorganisms can penetrate. Some people, however, produce more wax than the ear can take and can not remove remove, which can lead to symptoms such as pain or noises in the ear, feeling of being plugged or partial hearing loss. For treatment the aim is to soften the wax, which can be achieved with baby oil, commercial drops, glycerine, water or petrolatum; although you should not wipe too hard or often, as the wax helps keep the ears protected.
