EAR WAX, WHAT IS IT?
Ear wax is a common cause of tinnitus and hearing loss particularly sudden hearing loss.
Earwax is supposed to be there and is not unhealthy or dirty. It is in fact a cleaning mechanism for your ear and is produced by little glands deep inside the ear canal. In theory when these glands produce wax little hairs in the outer ear should push the wax along the ear canal and it should pop out the entrance to your ear. Earwax lubricates the ear canal which helps keep the ear free from dust and all types of bacteria.
