Earwax Treatments in Pompano Beach, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, FL

Earwax is a natural substance in the ear that protects the eardrum, blocking out dirt and other small particles that can cause infections. When the dirt is trapped in the earwax, the wax dries up and falls out of the ear, making it a natural cleaning process. However, it is possible for earwax to build up, causing mild hearing loss, dizziness, ear pain and ear ringing.

Many things can cause earwax buildup, but the most common causes are hearing aids, earplugs and cotton swabs. Contrary to popular belief, it is not recommended to use a cotton swab to clean out your ears because it could permanently damage your eardrum.

To treat earwax buildup, you could buy wax-softening ear drops or use warm water to flush out the ear, however, this should be suggested through Dr. Lapco. For more severe cases, contact Dr. Lapco today to relieve your earwax buildup symptoms and learn proper cleaning procedures for your ears. Dr. Lapco’s Pompano Beach office is located in Broward County just 10 miles from Coral Springs and 12 miles from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
