What To Do About Earwax (Cerumen)
In many cases, treatment is available for hearing loss, but you might not need much. Consider that earwax buildup can cause hearing loss. You may just need your ears cleaned!
Earwax (cerumen) is a waxy material produced and deposited in the outer ear to protect the ear from damaging substances such as germs, dirt, and water. Even if you try to clean wax out, it can become impacted in and around the eardrum, causing temporary hearing loss. You may not sense the dry, waxy substance, but if it’s present it can cause hearing loss temporarily. Cleaning your ears yourself can worsen the situation because it can compact the wax.
