Wax Removal – Loughborough
For most people, their ears will get rid of the excess wax in natural ways by moving to the outer ear via jaw movements from eating or talking, after which, it would dry and flake off. However, sometimes ear wax can block the ear canals. Ear wax blockages can arise by ear producing too much wax, using earplugs or even hereditary issues.

Some reasons you may have a build-up of ear wax are:
You may have more wax in your ears than other people do.
your ears may be hairy or, you have narrow ear canals which can easily trap more wax producing the ear wax build-up.
As you age wax gets firmer and can find it more troublesome for the natural processes to let the ear wax fall out.
Using hearing aids, swimming earplugs, headphone earplugs, or other devices can cause ear wax build up more than it should.
