The build-up of ear wax, called a cerumen impaction, can cause very uncomfortable symptoms ranging from pain and dizziness to impaired hearing. While the ear canals are designed to clean themselves out naturally, a blockage can occur from time to time, requiring medical attention. This is especially true in patients who have an abnormally shaped ear canal and those who use hearing aids or ear plugs on a regular basis.

At Temple Terrace Primary Care next to the University of South Florida, our doctors and their medical staff can effectively remove an ear wax blockage using solutions that dissolve and dislodge the wax, and irrigation techniques to wash it out. Patients who may have tried at-home remedies such as suction devices to address their ear wax problem will usually end up at our office seeking more effective treatment for a condition that has become very irritating, and we are happy to be able to give them the relief they are seeking. Our physicians can also refer chronic sufferers of ear wax blockages to a qualified otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat physician) for further treatment and care.

If you, your child or spouse has been suffering from an uncomfortable build-up of wax in the ear, don’t put off seeking medical assistance when an effective resolution is available. Contact us at 813.971.3136 or fill out an appointment request form today.
