Include Your Ears in Your Spring Cleaning This Year
This year, while you’re cleaning out your closets, attics, and other neglected spaces, give some thought to your ears as well! If you’re having a little bit of trouble hearing or feel like your ears are clogged, the answer may simply be impacted earwax, also known as cerumen. This waxy substance gathers dirt, dust and dead skin cells before they have a chance to damage your sensitive inner ear and moves them out of the ear canal. This is why you can occasionally see it seeping from your ear after a while.
Trying to keep your ears clean by inserting cotton swabs into the ear canal can easily push the earwax further in, causing it to plug up the ear canal and prevent sound from getting clearly to the eardrum.
Clearing excess earwax is a simple procedure but should only be done by a qualified professional with the specialized lubricants, tools and training to do it safely. Trying to do it on your own can compound the problem and cause you to damage your eardrum accidentally.
