Ear wax is a normal part of our anatomy that protects us from outside objects, insects & viral infections that may harm to our eardrums. However, when ear wax builds up it can lead to massive amounts of pain or infections! If you use cotton swabs to clean your ears you are putting yourself at risk! Cotton swabs are not meant to clean the ears they can lead to damage of the eardrum; this is why you leave the er cleaning to us!
If you do not know if you need an ear cleaning, some symptoms you may have are:
- Fullness in the ear
- A clogged sensation
- Partial hearing loss
- Ringing, or noises in the ear
