How do I prevent excess ear wax?
Hello, I am a 13 years old male. Is there any way to prevent ear wax? My ear itches due to wax. I don’t have any type of ear pain but I have to itch my ears. I clean my ears every alternate day but I spot ear wax the next. Is there any way to get rid of this? How do I prevent excess ear wax?
@bhavya-sharma Hello, earwax is produced by glands in the ear canal. it does trap dust and other small particles and prevent them from reaching and possibly damaging or infecting the eardrum. Normally, the wax dries up and falls out of the ear, along with any trapped dust or debris. Smaller or oddly shaped ear canals may make it difficult for the wax our ears make naturally to get out of the canal. This can lead to wax impactions. This is earwax buildup. See your doctor as you have a serious symptom like itching. Earwax blockage can often be prevented by avoiding the use of cotton-tipped swabs and other objects that push the wax deeper into the ear canal.
