Cerumen Management


Cerumen is also known as ‘earwax’.  It is a substance that is naturally produced by the glands in your ears and serves a few key functions:

  • Lubricates the ear canals
  • Keeps dust and debris out

In some cases, cerumen may begin to accumulate and cause a blockage.  Some symptoms include:

  • Earache
  • Ringing in the ears (also known as Tinnitus)
  • Hearing Loss
  • Ear Pressure


We recommend you do not try to remove it on your own.  Most people will try to use Q-tips to remove any blockages.  However often times the Q-tip can actually push the blockage farther down the canal causing more serious problems.

There are also at-home Earwax Removal kits that are available at most drug stores. While these are generally safe, it is highly suggested you speak with a hearing professional before trying anything.  We have special tools and training in safely removing these types of blockages.

If you are experiencing pain or discomfort as a result of earwax, come see us.  We are here to help.


Earwax can be a problem, but we can help you remove it safely.
