We are aware that the basic function of ear wax is to protect the ear canal from invasion by foreign particles like bacteria and dust. But you can witness some problems if the ear canal is blocked due to the accumulation of ear wax. An over accumulation of a natural substance called “Cerumen” (produced by glands and is present in the ear canal) is mainly triggered by the deficiency of Omega-3 fatty acids, zinc and magnesium.

Usually, we tend to use certain objects like bobby pins, Q-tips or cotton swabs to clean the accumulated earwax from the ear canal. What we don’t realize is that pricking the wax using these sharp objects can cause significant damage to the ear. What happens is that these objects tend to push the wax deep inside the canal, leading to blockage.

  • Excessive Ear Wax can cause:
  • Earache
  • Developing a fullness feeling in the ears
  •  Loss of hearing on temporary basis
  •  Itching

 How can you prevent Ear Wax Blockage?

  • Don’t use any pointed objects or cotton swabs inside the ears as it can cause ear infection and push the wax deeper.
  • Don’t use cold water or a strong jet to drain out the excess ear wax. Strong jet can lead to the damage of the ear drum while cold water may result in dizziness.
  •  Avoid using any other method to remove ear wax at home, such as suction or go to people sitting roadside for the same. Always get it removed from an ENT Specialist.
  •  Don’t use any type of acidic liquid in order to soften the ear wax.
  • Omega 3 fatty acids are good for mitigating the problem of ear wax. So, include walnuts, avocados, salmon, albacore and ground flax seed in your diet.
