General First Aid Information

Hearing loss

 

Wax build-up can frequently be flushed out of the ear (gently) with ear syringes (available in drug stores) and warm water. Wax softeners (like Cerumenex) may be needed if the wax is hard and impacted.
Care should be taken when removing foreign bodies. Unless it is easy to get to, have your health care provider remove the object. Don't use sharp instruments to remove foreign bodies.

Call your doctor if,
  • Hearing problems are persistent and unexplained
  • Hearing problems adversely affect lifestyle
  • There is an association with other symptoms such as ear pain
