Some people just produce too much earwax. If this is the case, it’s best to see a medical professional to help remove and alleviate the buildup. Using QTips, bobby pins or other foreign objects to help remove earwax actually pushes the wax deeper into the ear, creating a worse buildup.
You will know that you have an earwax buildup if you are suffering from the following symptoms:
- Sudden or partial hearing loss (this is usually temporary)
- Tinnitus – ringing or buzzing in your ears
- Feeling of fullness in the ear
However, if you’re noticing that you aren’t able to hear as clearly or as easily as you once were, then a visit to your local Beltone office, for a FREE hearing screening could help you rule out if you’re suffering from a wax buildup and if you may have a hearing loss as well.
Give us a call at 1-800-Beltone and we’ll help you find your nearest Beltone location.
