So when an outer ear infection occurs, you need quick, fast relief from symptoms and pain. At Ear Suction Hawkes Bay Anne has many babies, toddlers and children as clients as they are one of her areas of specialism. Anne is very experienced in dealing with microsuction for children of all ages.

Get fast relief

If you think your child or toddler may have an ear infection, we can assess your child with a quick appointment for treatment. We all know that children love to put things in places they shouldn’t, and foreign objects in ears are also known to cause ear infections. You may not even have seen your child do it, or perhaps while cleaning, the tip of the cotton bud got stuck in their ear. An assessment of the child’s ear with our special equipment can help determine the cause of the infection or whether Outer Ear Infections (Otitis Externa) or Inner Ear Infections (Otitis Media).

Infections

The infection can be cleared out using micro suction technology, the latest safe, efficient and gentle removal of infections. This low-pressure vacuum process clears the infection, removes the build-up of wax in your child’s ear, or the foreign object if that is the case, opening the ear canal.

Medicated drops

It is vital for a child or toddler who has a suspected ear infection to get specially medicated softening drops from their GP to use following their Microsuction session. These will be much more effective with no wax or debris in the outer ear canal.

Our Guide

Our booklet guide How to Survive an Ear Infection (Plus Other Health Issues that Occur in Ears) is packed full of useful information about ear infections, glue ear, earache and tinnitus. Normally priced at $19.99, our guide is free to our clients and to referring health professionals.

If you’d like a copy of our useful guide for free, book an appointment today at one of our handily-located clinics online on this website or by contacting Nick on 021 225 6425.

Surfer's ear is not the same as swimmer's ear, although infection can result as a side effect. Irritation from cold wind and water exposure causes the bone surrounding the ear canal to develop lumps of new bony growth which constrict the ear canal.

Where the ear canal is actually blocked by this condition, water and wax can become trapped and give rise to infection. The condition is so named due to its prevalence among cold water surfers. The condition is progressive, making it important to take preventative measures early - ear plugs, wetsuit hood, swim cap or diving helmets preferably whenever surfing. The condition is not limited to surfing and can occur in any activity with cold, wet, windy conditions.

Symptoms include decreased hearing or hearing loss, increased prevalence of ear infections, and difficulty evacuating debris or water from the ear causing a plugging sensation.

Treatment is by surgery to remove the obstructing ear canal bone is usually performed under general anesthesia. Most ear surgeons use a drill to remove the bone and may approach the area directly via the ear canal or by making an incision behind the ear and dissecting the ear forward.

Workplace noise and what you need to know

Workers can help to identify risks arising from noise related hazards, and suggest practical ways to eliminate or reduce these risks. This will encourage worker commitment to good hearing health.

Hearing loss is preventable

By adopting noise control measures, and educating and training workers on the importance of wearing hearing protection when exposed to loud noise, good hearing health will become a part of your workplace culture.

Good hearing means good worker health and well-being

A workers health can affect their ability to work safely and productively. Hearing loss has health impacts including reduced productivity, feelings of isolation and exclusion, stress and fatigue. Workers with good health are likely to have higher levels of productivity, are more engaged, and are able to keep working for longer, contributing to the success of your business.

Workplace noise can be harmful to hearing

If workers are exposed to loud noises over a long period of time, the hairs or nerve cells in the inner ear become damaged, and eventually stop responding to sound. This is called noise induced hearing loss (NIHL). Hearing damage can also occur from a sudden loud noise, extended exposure to vibrations from noisy machinery or ototoxic chemicals (chemicals that damage your hearing) found in substances such as paints, thinners, and glues.

Hearing loss is irreversible

Exposure to dangerous noise levels can cause temporary or permanent hearing loss, or tinnitus (a ringing in the ears). Damaged hearing reduces a person's ability to hear high frequency sounds, and some common consonant sounds such as t, k, s, sh and p. This type of damage can't ever be repaired.

Noise induced hearing loss (NIHL)

NIHL resulting from workplace noise affects as many as 100,000 New Zealanders. Noise-related injuries are most common in the manufacturing and construction sectors, and in male-dominated industries. Around 30% of all workers in New Zealand are exposed to loud noise at work at least 25% of the time.

Hearing Protection Programme

Setting up a hearing protection programme in your workplace can help to manage noise related risks, and protect the health of your workers.

Ear infections are very common in children but often occur in adults of any age. The main symptoms are earache and feeling unwell. Painkillers are the most common treatment as antibiotics are not usually helpful. For most people the infection normally clears within a few days.

Most ear infections are either Outer Ear Infections (Otitis Externa) or Inner Ear Infections (Otitis Media). The main differences between these two types of ear infections are as below:

Inner Ear Infections:
- Usually affects children
- Normally result from viruses e.g. cold and flu
- Affects the inner ear. This is the Eustachian tube which runs from the eardrum to the back of the nose.

Outer Ear Infections:
- Usually affects adults between the ages of 45 to 75
- Normally result from things entering the canal e.g. eczema, water or using ear plugs
- Affects the ear canal. This is the tube which runs between the outer ear and the eardrum.

Ear infections can cause all sorts of problems, as can earache, glue ear and tinnitus. Don’t forget we offer a free ear health assessment with a no wax, no fee guarantee - so come and see us so Anne can take go over your ear history, take a look in your ears and recommend a course of action to help your health improve.

Irritation from cold wind and water exposure causes the bone surrounding the ear canal to develop lumps of new bony growth which constrict the ear canal. Where the ear canal is actually blocked by this condition, water and wax can become trapped and give rise to infection.

Most avid surfers have at least some mild bone growths (called exostoses). The condition is progressive, making it important to take preventative measures early, preferably whenever surfing. The widespread use of wetsuits has allowed people to surf in much colder waters, which has increased the incidence and severity of surfer's ear for people who do not properly protect their ears.

Prevention includes avoiding activity during extremely cold or windy conditions and keeping the ear canal as warm and dry as possible preferably by ear plugs. We can help by keeping the ears free of wax and other debris and fitting you for custom-made ear plugs specially designed for swimmers and surfers, click here to find out more.
