Professional ear wax removal is a safe and effective method for removing excess ear wax, but you may notice some temporary changes to your ears – especially if the wax has been building up for some time.
The most common of these changes include:
- Your ears feel cold
- Greater sound sensitivity
- Dizziness and/or disorientation
- Your ear throbbing or feeling sore
The majority of these side effects usually pass within 24 hours as your body adjusts. If there is any throbbing or soreness, we recommend that you keep your ears dry for 24 hours. You can do this by placing a ball of cotton wool coated in Vaseline at the opening of your ear canal. Remember, though, that pushing anything down inside your ear canal could cause damage.
