What is ear wax?
Ear wax is a natural, moisturising secretion that helps keep your ears clean and healthy. We all produce ear wax at different rates.
What are the symptoms of ear wax build-up?
For people who produce a lot of ear wax, or if it’s quite dry, it can start to build up and cause problems. The symptoms of too much ear wax can include:
- Hearing loss
- Pain or discomfort in the ear (earache)
- Vertigo (dizziness and nausea)
