How To Deal With Blocked Ears And Hearing Loss?
I want to ask, what exactly do I have to do to dry wet ears? At the beginning my ears were dirty then I tried to soften them with baby oil and salt solution to rinse and clean the softened dirt, I used a pipette to take the solution water then I spray it slowly but in a few days my ears still feel clogged even though sometimes – sometimes disappear but when the blockage reappears it actually interferes with my activities even though there is no pain at all but the obstruction that disturbs my hearing, guess that’s why? And how to overcome it? That is all and thank you!
Hello Wild! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Hearing loss with sensations such as closed ears can be a sign of cerumen clogging in the ear canal. Cerumen (ear wax) is a thick liquid produced by the ear that is often referred to by people as ear wax. Actually, this serumen is harmless and is actually beneficial to protect the ear from bacteria. Serumen also does not need to be removed because the amount produced is controlled and the expenditure can also occur by itself. However, there are times when the wax builds up and hardens, so that someone has a hearing loss. This disorder often occurs when someone uses cotton buds to clean the ears or often uses a headset that is inserted into the ear. Using cotton buds or other devices can push the wax deeper and can hurt the ear.
If the earwax has blocked the ear, the earwax must be removed so as not to cause complications. It is recommended that you see a doctor, especially an ENT specialist, for examination. The doctor will use a special instrument (otoscope) to see the condition of your ear canal. After that, the doctor will take action using a special tool to remove ear wax. Besides cerumen, there are still other possible disorders that you experience, for example the presence of foreign objects in the ear (often there are insects that enter the ear and interfere with hearing). The doctor can also see the possibility during the examination.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
