What is the Best Ear Wax Removal Tool?

At Ear Wax Care, we know that an excess and build-up of ear wax can be very uncomfortable. When ear wax builds up in excess, it can cause hearing loss, earache, or a feeling that your ears are blocked, ringing or buzzing in your ears (tinnitus), or vertigo (feeling dizzy and sick). Desperate times call for desperate measures and you may be wondering what the best ear wax removal tool is for you.

The ear drum is sensitive

Essentially, due to how sensitive the ear canal and ear drum is, there is no tool that we can advise is safe for self-ear wax removal. The ear is delicate and using your fingers or any objects like cotton buds to remove ear wax will simply push it in and make it worse. Cotton buds pushes the wax deeper into the canal and over time, this may cause complete blockage. It may cause a feeling of pressure in the ear and diminished hearing. Even worse, clumps of ear wax pushed down near the eardrum can lead to painful ear infections.

Qualified specialists

If you are looking to remove ear wax, the simple answer is that you should not do this yourself due to the associated risks. Any ear wax removal should only be carried out by qualified ear wax removal specialists. At Ear Wax Care, we have a team of trained Audiologists who have been trained to carry out these procedures and will do so safely.
