Ear Wax

Although a certain amount of wax within your ears is normal, and encouraged to keep bacteria and debris from entering the sensitive parts of the inner ear, a build-up of excess ear wax can be uncomfortable.


The typical signs of impacted wax are:

  • Earache
  • Difficulty hearing
  • Itchiness
  • Dizziness/vertigo
  • Ear infections
  • Sounds such as high-pitched tones coming from inside the ear (tinnitus)

If you're a hearing aid wearer, excess ear wax could cause a poor fitted hearing aid, damage or the need to clean more often or a whistling noise.

Talk to your Hearing Aid Audiologist or GP if you think you have a build-up of ear wax. They may recommend home remedies, such as olive oil, or a full ear clean.
