Ear Wax Removal
Buildup of ear wax can be uncomfortable and annoying but can also prove damaging to one's eardrum. To control the amount of wax and make sure it does not stay in the ear and become impacted, we have ear wax removal eardrops that are formulated to loosen and remove excess ear wax. Use occasionally to make sure ear wax does not build up over time and cause ear canal issues.
DID YOU KNOW? Earwax is produced by glands in the ear canal. Although scientists are still not completely sure why we have earwax, its purpose is to trap dust and other small particles and prevent them from reaching, and potentially damaging or infecting the eardrum. Normally, the wax dries up and falls out of the ear, along with any trapped dust or debris. Everyone makes ear wax, but the amount and type are genetically determined just like hair color or height. Smaller or oddly shaped ear canals may make it difficult for the naturally occurring wax to get out of the canal and lead to wax impactions.
