Anything in your ear canal can create noises. Long hairs tapping on your ear drum for instance. Wax or dry skin often crackles.
There are various reasons why people experience noisy ears. If you hear noises in your ear while you are chewing or talking, this is likely to be caused by long, loose hairs moving on your ear drum.
Other times the ear canal skin flakes off in a clump and falls backward – these move around like ‘tumbleweeds’ as your head moves.
Occasionally, tiny pieces of sand, dirt, or gravel find their way into the ear canal and move on and off the ear drum, or scrunch together which make noise.
With our magnified view, we can quickly assess what is causing the noisy ears and gently and safely remove the cause.
