Wax (or cerumen) is naturally secreted from glans in the ear canal and are critical in protecting the inner portions of the ear from bacteria, dirt and fungus. Not only does it stop foreign objects from moving further down the ear canal, but it also moisturises and protects the skin in the ear.
Cotton tips and ear candles are NEVER recommended as they can lead to further damage and problems within the ear.
Should you experience symptoms of excessive wax build-up, further investigation may be warranted by an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist.
Feel free to contact the clinic to arrange a full diagnostic hearing assessment with one of our audiologists.
