“So, how should I clean my ears?”
People ask this question all the time.
Lots of people don’t need to think about their ears because they never block up but others have regular problems with blockage.
Ears are supposed to be self-cleaning. The earwax is gently pushed out by the skin moving like a conveyor belt.
Ears should only be cleaned with a face cloth or tissue if wax can be seen on the outside of the ear.
Cotton buds should never be used because the wax can be pushed further in, the ear may be scratched or become itchy.
Some people just have ears that block up regularly.
They may have narrow canals or a family history of earwax trouble.
Some can’t resist using cotton buds or hairpins to clean or scratch their itchy ears.
Hearing aid wearers and people who use earplugs or music earplugs a lot also need to see a health professional for regular ear cleaning.
So, how can earwax be stopped from building up?
The short answer is that it can’t be because earwax is naturally formed inside the entrance to ears.
Earwax is needed because it helps to prevent ear infections, traps dust and moistens the skin inside.
It’s just a shame that wax is overproduced or becomes trapped and blocks some people’s ears.
How do people know if they have an ear wax problem?
Sometimes they don’t, unless a health professional looks inside.
But a blocked feeling, poor hearing, itchy ears, noises suddenly starting in the ear, or slight balance issues are common signs.
