Ear care should be a vital activity included in one’s hygienic practice. Earwax is considered to be annoying for some, but did you know that this naturally produced wax has an important use? The ears produce wax in order to protect it from the entry of bacteria and microorganisms that may cause infection. It also lubricates the ear. Unfortunately, too much production and accumulation of the earwax have a negative impact too. The collection of earwax inside the ear canal may result in hearing difficulties, dizziness, and a feeling that something is blocking inside the ear.
It is ideal to clear the ear of earwax from time to time. Bear in mind that natural ear wax cleaning should never be performed on a daily basis. If you have the habit of cleaning your ears daily, the ear loses its protective barrier from infections. Ideally, earwax removal should be done at least every other day.
Here are symptoms of the accumulation of wax inside the ear canal:
- Incessant itching inside the canal
- Tinnitus or ringing in the ears
- The appearance of abnormal draining from the ear canal
- Reduced hearing
