What Causes Earwax Buildup ?

Earwax buildup can be caused by several factors, including :

  • Producing too much earwax : Some people naturally have more earwax than others. This is usually not a problem, but it can lead to buildup if the earwax is not removed regularly.
  • Having narrow ear canals : People with narrow ear canals are more likely to experience earwax buildup because the wax has a harder time moving out of the canal.
  • Using cotton swabs to clean your ears : Cotton swabs can push earwax deeper into the ear canal, leading to buildup.
  • Having a skin condition : C People with certain skin conditions, such as eczema, are more likely to experience earwax buildup.
  • Being elderly : Earwax becomes drier and harder with age, which makes it more likely to build up.
  • Having a foreign object in your ear : A foreign object, such as a piece of cotton or a bead, can block the ear canal and prevent earwax from moving out.

Symptoms Of Earwax Buildup

  • Hearing loss.
  • Earache.
  • Fullness in the ear.
  • Dizziness.
  • Tinnitus (ringing or buzzing sound in the ear).
  • Ear discharge (clear, yellow, or brown).

Tips For Preventing Earwax Buildup:

Here are some tips for preventing earwax buildup:

  • Avoid using cotton swabs to clean your ears.
  • Keep your ears dry. Earwax is more likely to build up if your ears are wet. After swimming or showering, dry your ears thoroughly with a towel.
  • Wear earplugs when swimming or using machinery that produces a loud noise.
  • Use over-the-counter ear drops that contain hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to soften earwax. These drops can help to loosen earwax so it can be removed more easily.
  • Have your ears professionally cleaned by a doctor or audiologist if you experience frequent earwax buildup. A doctor or audiologist can remove earwax safely and effectively.
