Blocked ears can be very off putting. We are fast approaching the peak time for it, since we are all about to go on holiday and dive into swimming pools or the sea, probably for the first time in a year. If there is ear wax that you don’t know about, this sudden drenching will cause the wax to expand, possibly blocking the ear, and leaving water trapped behind the wax – which is a really good medium for bacteria to grow in – causing swimmer’s ear, or otitis externa to give it a proper name. This is a very painful condition, and will probably mean a trip to the local doctor, who will prescribe antibiotics, and maybe wash the ear out. This is expensive, takes time and may ruin a few days in the middle of the holiday. It is better to get your ears looked at before you go. The cost at HealthHub is £100 for a consultation and examination, £50 for ear wax removal if it is found. All by an experienced Consultant ENT Surgeon.
