Common causes of dizziness due to inner ear deficits include Meniere’s disease, a bacterial or viral infection of the inner ear, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), motion sickness, allergies, medications, and circulatory conditions.  More commonly it is caused by too much wax build-up. Microsuction is the best way to remove excess and/or impacted earwax.

Do audiologists clean ears?

Audiologists have the training and the skill to use special medical tools to remove wax from your ear. If you have an impaction, then they can treat the problem using a method called micro-suction earwax removal. Even if your earwax is not fully impacted, audiologists can remove it if too much has built up inside your ear canal.

Why are my ears so waxy and itchy?

The most common causes of itching are a nervous habit, fungal infection or the beginning of an infection. Other causes can be skin diseases such as psoriasis or dermatitis. Some people with allergies complain of Itchy ears. The ear canal may be normal on examination or there may be scaling of the skin.

Can you clear earwax from your ear?

Working in a loud environment, or ones where the environment is very dusty, are things that can cause a wax buildup (cerumen impaction) and that can make it hard for you to hear with the affected ear. Other things can cause earwax buildup as well. Sometimes a few drops of mineral oil, baby oil, glycerin, or hydrogen peroxide in your ear can soften the wax and help clear it out. If that doesn’t work, see your Audiologist for earwax relief using gentle micro-suction.

Should I clean my own ears?

About the only thing doctors do agree on putting anything inside your ear is a bad idea. Your ears usually do a good job cleaning themselves and don’t need any extra care. The only reason you should clean them is to soften or remove earwax from the outside of your ear canals.
