Ear Wax Blockage is a Health Concern
source:http://www.thisismyindia.com/health/ear-wax-blockage.html

Ear wax is general problem for every one. People sometimes ignore it and when there is trouble in listening, they visit doctor. It should not be taken lightly. Though it is not a serious problem but if cleanliness is not maintained, it can have dangerous effects. The ears are made up of three different parts: the outer ear, also called the pinna. The middle ear is which is distinctly separated from the outer ear by the eardrum (sometimes called the tympanic membrane). The middle ear contains tiny bones which amplify sound waves. The inner ear is where most sound waves are translated into electrical impulses and conducted to the brain. The hair and secretory glands in the ear canal cleans itself with a waxy secretion called cerumen, most of the time. Ear was has a defensive function in nature. The skin lining the outer ear canal contains glands which produce cerumen. The cerumen is a slighty yellowish – brown waxy substance. Earwax consists of dead, flattened cells on the outer layer of skin, a wax-like substance produced by sweat glands, sebum (an oily substance produced by sebaceous glands), and various other substances, such as cosmetics and dirt. In nature, its function is to shield the underlying tissues. It also helps to prevent from infection by trapping micro-organisms, dirt and other irritants. Wax is constantly traveling towards the outer ear where it can drop out. Actions of the jaw, such as talking and chewing, assist to massage the wax out of the canal. The ear wax shed skin cells and dirt. The absence of ear wax may result in dry, itchy ears, and even infection. Cerumen may vary in form and appearance. It may be almost liquid, or firm and solid. The usage of ear phones and speakers obstructs with the smooth movement to the exterior. Therefore, the wax builds up because it is not able to get to the exterior, this may be due to the use of hearing aids or head phones.

The accumulation of wax, in the outer ear causes numerous symptoms. These are mild deafness and/or a sensation of fullness inside the ear. This condition is not dangerous and easily treated most of the time. However, sometimes, a wax plugs forms and may need intervention to loosen and aid its extraction. Ear wax may cause mild to sever earache, a sensation of fullness inside the ear, a constant ringing in the ear. This is often called “Tinnitus”. There may be loss of balance / dizziness.

Some individuals are more prone to ear wax blockages than others. The exact reasons are not clearly understood but it is established that some people produce more ear wax than others.

According to statistics, patients with narrower ear canals are more likely to have problems. —>>>> this is my problem..


People who have hairy ear canals, poor personal hygiene, overzealous cleaning with fingertips or cotton buds, which pushes wax further down the ear canals, working in dusty or dirty environments, inflammatory conditions of the skin or scalp are at greater risk of ear wax problems. It is advisable that person should not put anything smaller than elbow in ear. Wax is not formed in the deep part of the ear canal near the eardrum, but only in the outer part of the canal near the external opening. So when a doctor examines that a patient has wax pushed up against the eardrum, he or she knows that it is often because the patient has been probing his or her ear with such things as Q-Tips, bobby pins or twisted napkin corners. Such objects only serve as ramrods to push the wax deeper into the ear. Also, the skin of the ear canal and the eardrum is very thin and fragile, and is easily injured. The ear canal is more prone to infection after it has been whipped clean of the good coating-type wax. Doctors see many perforated eardrums as a result of the above efforts.

Diagnosis is done by ENT specialists. There are no tests conducted to confirm the presence of earwax. However, if person have problems as a result of earwax, a specialist may examine both of ear canals using an instrument called an auriscope. They will be able to see if wax is present, and whether or not it appears to be impacted. If person have hearing loss, it may be the result of impacted earwax. It be detected using a number of tuning fork tests, such as Rinne test and Weber test. In Rinne test, doctor places a vibrating tuning fork at different points of patient’s ear usually, the external auditory meatus (the entrance to the ear canal) and the mastoid bone (behind the ear lobe). Patient will be asked to say which one sounds the loudest so that the tester can determine whether he is more able to pick up sound via air conduction or bone conduction. In the Weber test, the vibrating tuning fork is placed on the middle of patient’s forehead. The Weber test will facilitate the tester to determine whether hearing loss is sensorineural (sound loss through the air), conductive (sound loss through bone), or whether it is a combination of both. If there is a combination of both sensorineural and conductive hearing loss, the results of the tuning fork tests may be unreliable

A competent physician can diagnose the condition by examining into the ear canal. There are many treatment options. Some doctors recommend the use of two drops of mineral oil in each ear one day per week at bedtime to help liquefy ear wax in people who have a history of recurrent problems with ear wax. This should only be done if the individual has an intact eardrum and no other known problems with the ears. They can use an ear syringe to squeeze warm water into the ear canal and float out the wax plug. This works because the wax is oily and floats on warm water. A comparatively new but high tech. method involves the use of a suction device to suck out the wax. Removing the wax with forceps or a special hook is often done in socio economically poor areas. If the ear is completely plugged and there are large quantities of hardened wax then the patient must immediately visit doctor for treatment.

Numerous complications may occur as a result of impacted earwax. These include infection, failure of earwax removal, otitis externa (inflammation of the ear canal), otitis media (inflammation of the middle ear caused by water entering when there is a previous perforation), perforation of the tympanic membrane (eardrum), damage to the external auditory meatus (tube running from the outer ear to the middle ear), pain, and vertigo. In some cases, light bleeding can occur but, if it does, it usually stops on its own. Nausea, vomiting, and vertigo may result from temperature variations of the irrigating fluid. In rare cases, infection may progress to the base of the skull, causing cranial paralysis, meningitis, and death. The elderly and people who are diabetic, or have a weak immune system are most commonly affected. Chronic tinnitus (noises in ear) can occur following earwax removal after irrigation or ear curettage.

We all know that it is not possible to reduce the amount of ear wax that is produced by the patient’s ear or to widen the patient’s ear canals. However, there are ways to reduce the occurrence of wax build-up. It is considered careful to use wax-softening drops or oils twice a week. If person is using a brand product, it is best to follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Many problems can be prevented by avoid cleaning the ear canals with cotton buds or fingertips. Always clean the outer ear with a moist towel only. Person must contact a specialist for any associated inflammatory or infective skin conditions.

i love this song soo much!!:)  

 


Is your favourite colour blue?
Do you always tell the truth?
Do you believe in outerspace?
And im learning you

Is your skin as tanned as mine?
Does your hair flow sideways?
Did someone took a portion of your heart?
And im learning you

And if you dont mind 
Can you tell me
All your hopes and fears
and Everything that you believe in
Would you make a difference in the world 
I’d love for you to take me to a deeper conversation
Only you can make me

I let my guard down for you
And in time you will too 

4x
Deeper Conversation

 

the song is specially for u awak……(^_^)

my beloved...lost macbook and house @ kulim square remain in memories…..

salam and hi all..

I’m here just to brush up my skills of writing.. inspired by Ain too ,kudos to AIN=D. since after this will be a lot of reading reading and reading , writing writing and writing and thinking thinking thinking!!. so I found out this is one of d way to improve my skills 🙂

will it be exciting? scary? ..Counting my days, hours, minute and seconds to end my life at Kulim is quite scary seems like counting how many days left for me to live in this world.. I’ll further my study in master at Universiti Islam Antarabangsa, Gombak, KL in July 09 (full time mixmode courses)….moving from industry life working as mask design engineer to an academician life study + research is really a huge transition and need a physical and mental preparation. Nothing is easy in this life…

I gained a lot of valuable info+ advice during my research method course for 8 days at UIA last 2 weeks. It is a prerequisite for those who apply the scholarship under SLAB program… become student, researcher and lecturer is even more challenging + difficult since everything is unknown. Choosing a supervisor is d most critical part, choose a topic for research that u will die for the rest of the year ( if PhD min is 3 years) is another crucial part, repeated works are expected, sleep at the lab more than 24 hours…and reading and writing is the thing that I need to brush up from now.. Some of them even called PhD – Partial Hard Damage.. really scary huh?.. but after saw all d lecturers came back successfully, i feel really inspired to further my study.. i also can do it!! yakin boleh..hehe.. 

WORK HARD WORK SMART WORK SINCERELY AND WORK UNTIL FINISH… kerja keras..kerja cerdas..kerja ikhlas..kerja habis… and PRAY PRAY PRAY.

3 years life at Penang and Kulim really teach me a lot :). the environment, all my colleagues, my big boss, the layout works, working days and nite during peak hours..hehe…..UNO game during lunch hour 😛 rm1 subsidy for lunch..free fruit coupon.. my learning experience and all the sweet memories at Intel will always remain in my heart.

As Chandra Segaran: “Don’t set a limit for yourself – do it now while you still can and you will have good memories that will stay with you for life” 

when there is a WILL, there is a WAY 🙂

ganbarimasu!!!!

U can do it Aliza 🙂 

p/s: i’ll day by day improve my writing..sorry for the broken english used..

“… Boleh jadi kamu membenci sesuatu, padahal ia amat baik bagimu, dan boleh jadi (pula) kamu menyukai sesuatu, padahal ia amat buruk bagimu; Allah mengetahui, sedang kamu tidak mengetahui.” (Surah al-Baqarah [2]:216)

i’ll always remember this ayat.. since it will remind me that everything that happens to me have hikmah behind it.. even how bad we hate it, we regret it , only Allah knows..
