One thing we all have but rarely think about unless there is a problem is earwax. Earwax is an essential component for hearing health; normally, we don’t even notice its effects. Earwax lines the ear canals and traps moisture and debris, protecting the delicate hairs from damage. The ear canal is self-cleaning, and earwax should not be removed. However, some people experience an issue with the overproduction of earwax. While this condition is not considered threatening, it can be very uncomfortable. Some of the symptoms of earwax blockage can include; muffed or diminished hearing, drainage in the ear, congestion, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), dizziness, pain, and itchiness. If you are experiencing earwax blockage, try these helpful tips the next time you are having issues.
