Foreign body in ear canal

hearing aid dome wedged in ear canal

If left untreated, a foreign object in the ear can cause pain, infection and hearing loss. If you feel there is something foreign in your ear, do not probe the ear with a tool such as cotton bud or matchstick as this will push the item further in the ear and may damage the ear.

 

This photo from a lady I saw yesterday shows the rubber dome from her hearing aid wedged in the canal. She did not reinsert her hearing aid so it was not too deep and I was able to remove safely with specialist forceps.

 

If you have any concerns about your ears I can do a video examination so we can see exactly what the issue is and deal with it accordingly.

 

Call Ben on 07598 303877 or contact us here for an appointment in Havant, Petersfield or Wickham.
