The microsuction is safe, but you may notice some temporary changes to your ears, especially if the wax has been building up for some time. These include:
- A cold feeling in your ears
- Greater sensitivity to sounds
- Disorientation or dizziness
- Throbbing, or a sore feeling in your ear
Most of these symptoms will pass within 24 hours as your body adjusts. For any throbbing or soreness, it is recommended that you keep your ears dry for 24 hours. You can do this by placing a ball of cotton wool coated in Vaseline, just at the opening of your ear canal. It is important to remember that pushing anything down inside your ear canal could cause damage.
