When experiencing earache, you are very likely to become sensitive to almost every sound. The pain can be severe and can cause sleeplessness. Earaches can often keep you from enjoying things you like to do.
Though the loss of hearing is not fatal, it does lead to a host of health-related problems over time. Many individuals feel their self-esteem is hampered. Depression and dementia have found to be linked with untreated loss of hearing.
If you live in a noisy environment or your work requires you to be exposed to loud noise, you might want to consider using earplugs (or earmuffs) to avoid earaches induced by noise. Exposure to loud noises can cause permanent and irreversible damage to the ears.

You might want to use treatments such as hydrogen peroxide or glycerin etc. that help soften and wash away the ear wax. If you are still prone to excess ear wax buildup, you may want to consult a physician or an ENT specialist.
