Cerumen also known as earwax is a healthy body substance which may require careful management, especially for those who constantly wear hearing aids or ear plugs. Wax is a normal part of the ear’s defence mechanism. Ear plugs and hearing aids are made of plastic materials which act as a foreign body to the ear, increasing wax production. Wax management may be easily carried out at home by the individual following specialised instructions. A consultation with our audiologists will clarify your specific needs and alternatively wax removal may be conducted in the clinic if necessary.
