Ear Wax Impaction

EarWaxOne of the most common causes of hearing loss is actually ear wax buildup, or cerumen impaction.  This affects patients of all ages and causes a sensation of fullness in the affected ear.  Often times peroxide based ear drops at the local pharmacy can assist in removing the ear wax.  However, in cases where ear wax remains after using over the counter remedies, ENT evaluation can assist in further clearing out the remaining wax.
