Other conditions

Hardened ear wax

Cerumen (ear wax) is a normal secretion, which provides a water resistant protective film for the ear canal and the ear drum. Sometimes too much cerumen is produced, and builds up to form a blockage of the canal. Discomfort, a feeling of fullness in the ear and even temporary loss of hearing can result. In this situation, the ear wax needs to be removed.

Excessive sweating / hyperhidrosis

Sweating is necessary to control body temperature. Sweating is regulated by the sympathetic nervous system. In up to 1% of the population, this system is overactive, causing sweating to occur at inappropriate times in specific areas of the body. This is called hyperhidrosis, and it can occur in many different areas of the body, most commonly on the hands, feet and armpits. It can also occur on the face, the head, the groin and the back. To find out more about excessive sweating, go to www.hyperhidrosisuk.org
