CIC Hearing Aid FAQs

Earwax, or “cerumen” as it’s sometimes known, is a brown/yellow substance produced in the ear canal. There are both dry and wet varieties, and yours will be determined largely by your genetics.

Earwax is totally normal and has three main roles:

  • Cleaning – earwax contains antimicrobial properties designed to help keep your ears free of infection
  • Protection – earwax can guard against bacteria due to its mild acidity, lysozyme, and saturated fatty acids content
  • Lubrication – earwax helps prevent the sensitive skin of your ear canal from getting dry, acting as a natural lubricant

Though earwax is very good and necessary, when it’s present in excessive quantities, it can cause some negative side effects.

When your ears are blocked with too much wax, you may experience one or more common symptoms, including:

  • Itchiness and irritation
  • Muffled or quieter hearing
  • Earache and dizziness, though rare
  • Tinnitus and other drone sounds

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, contact us for a consultation.

There are many different contributors to earwax build-up. Your biology may play a part. For example, if you have particularly narrow or hairy ear canals, it can make it much easier for earwax and other debris to build up. Similarly, as people age, earwax can often start to get a harder texture, making it easier for it to clog up your ear canals.

Lifestyle can play a part too. For example, if you regularly use hearing aids or earplugs, they may block your ear canal and make excess build-up more likely. So too can overly regular usage of cotton buds, as it pushes the wax further back into your ear.
