Ear wax isn’t something we have to think about very often. The production of wax in your ear canal is a natural process that usually goes unnoticed. You usually only notice it when it becomes a problem. Ear Microsuction serves several important purposes to keep your ears healthy, but can cause unwanted side effects if too much builds up. Many people try to remove excess wax at home, however it’s recommended to get professional help to do so to avoid accidental injury. If your ears are suffering from an excess build up of wax, the experts at Touchwood Pharmacy can help.
Ear Wax Complications
A buildup of earwax can cause several different symptoms, the main one being a sudden loss of hearing. The hearing loss can be in one or both ears.
Other symptoms include:
- Pressure in your ear
- Vertigo or loss of balance
- Buzzing in your ears
- Ear pain
- Discharge from your ear
- A strange or foul odour in your ears
Ear Wax Microsuction
Touchwood Pharmacy offers fast, efficient, and affordable private ear wax removal services in Streatham, Northolt, Sydenham, Northampton and several other locations throughout Southern England. It’s a simple procedure where one of our professionals will guide a small ear microsuction machine into the ear canal to gently vacuum out and dislodge excess wax.
Before your appointment, we recommend using olive oil twice per day for 5-7 days to soften your ear wax for easier removal. Be sure to only use olive oil drops or olive oil spray specifically designed for the ears and to use them as directed.
Ear wax microsuction is a relatively painless procedure, but some people may experience mild side effects. To help prevent any discomfort, let our pharmacists know if you have had any recent ear infections, ear operations, or suspect you have a perforated or damaged ear drum.
Potential Ear Microsuction Side Effects
- Temporary loss of hearing
- Discomfort during the procedure
The noise from the machine can also be uncomfortable for some people.
