When the doctor came in the room, I explained what was wrong and he just didn’t seem to care he did a few examinations but didn’t really examine where I said it was hurting. Going to a different urgent care today. Hopefully I’ll get better results and more answers

NextCare Urgent Care, Thornton - 9720 Grant St, Thornton
Was not impressed with the bedside manner of the PA. He prescribed a medicine the would counter act qith my warfin. I would have never known but the person at Walmart would not fill it because of this. I called the office to let them know what he did. The MA said that they would call another one in but they would be closing so give it an hour for it to go through. I waited over an hour called the pharmacy and they told me nothing had come through yet. So at 6 I called the Broomfield office and they did a wonderful job. I got my medication. I feel that more supervision should be at that location in thornton. I WILL NOT RECOMMEND THUS TO ANYONE.

NextCare Urgent Care, Golden - 17121 S Golden Rd, Golden
Got food poisoning while traveling and booked an appointment the day of my return to be seen. The wait time was minimal and scheduling and pre paperwork were easy. I had no food or proper liquids for the past 3 days and am experiencing extreme vomiting and diarrhea. Intake was rushed, no bloodwork was done, I was given a stool sample kit to take home. They infiltrated the IV in my arm, causing swelling and pain, and I only got a quarter of a bag of fluid into my body. No hot compress or other help offered, no additional IV point offered to get me more fluid. They told me that in anti nausea meds were called into my pharmacy, which I just went to, and the pharmacy didn’t receive the prescription order. I will now need to call back to request that the prescription be sent again. Horrible experience when I already feel awful and have no energy. I had to pay $200 out of pocket even with insurance. I will likely just go to a different care facility tomorrow to actually get an IV and bloodwork done.

Colorado Ear Wax Removal

Ear wax shields your ears from dirt, bacteria, and other microscopic particles that might irritate your ear canal and cause hearing loss. Too much ear wax, on the other hand, might clog your ear canal and cause hearing loss. Knowing how to remove ear wax in a safe and effective manner can help you protect your hearing and ear health.

About ear wax — why do we have ear wax?

Ear wax is a natural substance that protects your ears by collecting microscopic debris such as dust and bacteria that may otherwise enter and harm them. Ear wax also protects the sensitive skin inside your ear canal from water-related discomfort, according to the National Library of Medicine (NLM).

Ear wax collects dead skin cells, debris, and hair as it flows from the inside of your ears to the outside of the ear canal. Ear wax has antibacterial and antifungal characteristics, according to Harvard Medical School, making it an efficient natural ear cleanser. It goes on to say that if your ears don't create or contain enough ear wax, they'll be itchy and painful.

Treatment of a common ear condition

According to the National Library of Medicine, removing ear wax can help you prevent and avoid hearing loss. Most cases of ear wax buildup, according to the National Library of Medicine, can be treated at home using procedures that soften the wax so it can be readily removed or washed out. It goes on to say that in some cases, you may need to seek medical assistance to avoid hurting your ears or triggering an infection.

Hearing loss caused by ear wax buildup is usually transitory and goes away once the blockage is removed, according to the National Library of Medicine. Hearing loss that persists after removing ear wax should be evaluated and treated by a doctor.

The side effects of excessive ear wax

According to the National Library of Medicine, excessive ear wax can cause ear discomfort and hearing issues. Ear pain, the sense of blocked ears, and tinnitus (inner ear noises) are all frequent adverse effects of ear wax buildup, according to the National Library of Medicine. You may also have a partial hearing loss that worsens with time.

The development of ear wax

Cerumen is another name for ear wax. According to Harvard Medical School, it is a mixture of secretions from sebaceous glands and sweat glands in the outer ear canal's walls.

When you chew or chat with your jaw, the secretions pass through the inner ear canal and into the outer ear canal, where they dry out and flake. According to Harvard Medical School, this permits older ear wax deposits to flow out or be removed more readily from your ears..

Where wax comes from

Ear wax is a natural ear cleanser produced by glands in the ear canal to protect your ears from dangerous dirt and other debris, according to Harvard Medical School. It goes on to say that no one knows why some people have greater ear wax problems than others.

According to the University of Texas at Austin, older people with coarse, wiry hairs in their ears have higher ear wax buildup difficulties than others. Hearing aid users have more ear wax than non-users, owing to the fact that some hearing aids are constructed in such a way that wax cannot readily move out of the ear canal.

Ear wax removal tips

Cotton swabs are commonly used to remove ear wax accumulation. According to UC San Diego, many medical specialists advise against employing this procedure since it can push wax deeper into the ear canal. It goes on to say that the easiest approach to clean your ears is to use wax-softening ear drops, which can be found at almost any pharmacy.

The National Library of Medicine recommends using baby oil or mineral oil to soften ear wax. Once you can see the wax, you can easily remove it from the outer ear canal with a small piece of cloth or tissue wrapped around your finger.

If you're having trouble removing ear wax, the National Library of Medicine suggests seeing a doctor. Other irrigation methods, as well as a curette or suction equipment, can be used by a doctor to eliminate ear wax.

Tips for hearing-aid wearers

The National Library of Medicine recommends that people who use hearing aids have their ear canals examined for extra wax every three to six months. According to Harvard Medical School, ear wax is responsible for 60 percent to 70% of hearing aid degradation. If you use a hearing aid, have your doctor examine your ears at least once every six months for ear wax buildup.

Ear Wax Removal FAQs

  • What will happen if I don’t clean my ears?

    If you don't clean your ears regularly, you may develop an excessive amount of ear wax. The National Institutes of Health lists pain or itching in the ear, ringing in the ear, and a sense that the ear is full or clogged as signs of too much ear wax (NIH). If you do not clean your ears, you may have odor or discharge from the ear, as well as hearing loss, according to the NIH.

  • Should I do anything to prevent a buildup of ear wax?

    You don't need to do anything to keep ear wax from accumulating. However, if ear wax does build up, you should remove it yourself or get it removed by a medical professional to avoid hearing loss and ear discomfort, according to the National Library of Medicine.

  • What symptoms can be caused by too much ear wax?

    According to the National Library of Medicine, too much ear wax can produce symptoms such as earache, fullness in the ear, tinnitus, and partial hearing loss.

  • Does it hurt to remove ear wax?

    Ear cleaning procedures for removing ear wax should not be painful. If you're having trouble eliminating ear wax, the National Library of Medicine suggests consulting a medical practitioner for assistance

  • If ear wax is removed, will my hearing improve?

    According to the National Library of Medicine, if the ear wax obstruction is cleared, your hearing will usually return entirely. Ear wax buildup usually causes transient hearing loss that lasts until your ears are cleaned.

  • How often should I remove wax from my ears?

    Your ear wax should naturally come out when your body no longer requires it, according to the National Institutes of Health. It goes on to say that you should only clean your ears if you have symptoms of too much ear wax or if you can see wax near the end of the ear canal.

  • Is removing ear wax costly?

    According to the National Institutes of Health, the cost of removing ear wax varies depending on the method used. Based on your budget and income, your healthcare professional may be able to propose the best ear wax removal procedure for you.

  • Do cotton swabs remove wax from the ear?

  • Where can I get ear wax removed in Colorado?

    Your primary care physician or a specialist who specializes in ear, nose, and throat health can remove ear wax. To find nearby providers of this service, use Solv to find an ear wax removal service and book an appointment for the same-day or next-day.
