Can I prevent my hearing aids from being affected by earwax?

A little bit of wax in your hearing aid is unavoidable, and they’re designed to handle this. If earwax does build up to the point where it’s affecting the device’s performance, your EarQ provider can easily clean it. Don’t use cotton swabs to clean your ears, as this creates more problems than it solves. Your ear is self-cleaning, and a little bit of wax is normal. However, you can clean the outer part of your ear with a damp washcloth wrapped around your finger. Your finger shouldn’t go into your ear canal, as that could damage part of your inner ear.
