Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Ear Wax Blockage * But Were Afraid to Ask

"Earwax blockage"
Mayo Clinic

"Earwax blockage occurs when earwax (cerumen) accumulates in your ear and becomes too hard to wash away naturally.

"Earwax is a helpful and natural part of your body's defenses. It protects your ear canal by trapping dirt and slowing the growth of bacteria. It's not known why some people experience earwax blockage or why earwax blockage often occurs in only one ear.

"If earwax blockage becomes a problem, you or your doctor can take simple steps to remove the wax safely...."

That's the first page, "Definition." There's more: "Symptoms," "Causes," "Preparing for your appointment," "Tests and diagnosis," and more.

Seriously? Ear wax buildup can be a real problem. But, somehow, it's not something that most folks talk about. Now, you have a reliable way to find answers to your questions about ear wax.
