Earwax

Wax is an important and natural secretion found in the ear. Wax helps protect the ear against bacteria, helping to prevent infection. 

Usually earwax falls out of the ear on its own. However, sometimes wax can build up in the ear canal causing earache, hearing loss, itchiness, Tinnitus, or dizziness

If you think you may have earwax, haven’t experienced ear surgery, and don’t have a hole in your eardrum, please read how to treat earwax build-up.
