The ear canal produces cerumen, a light brown or yellow-colored fluid also known as ear wax. It is a waxy oil that protects the ear from foreign particles, dust and microbes, protecting ear canal skin against irritation caused by water as well. Normally, the excess wax finds its way out of the ear canal, into ear opening and then gets washed away.
Ear wax when produced more than necessary blocks the ear. It is the most common reason for temporary hearing loss.
Excess ear wax generation does not become cause of hearing loss automatically. When this wax is pushed deeper by cotton swabs, pins or any other equipment, it creates blockage leading to hearing loss. Continuous usage of earphones is also a major cause of ear wax problems as it prohibits the wax to wash out.
Symptoms of ear wax are quite easily noticeable;
Partial hearing loss in one or both ears
Buzzing in ear
Fullness in ear
Drainage from ear
Fever, coughing and dizziness in severe cases
If you come across any of the above signs, visit your doctor as soon as possible.
