People think of earwax as some kind of dirt that needs to be removed.
However, earwax plays a vital role in protecting the inner parts of your ears from actual dirt, dust, and bacteria. It basically keeps out the things you’d normally want out of your ears.
Our body naturally gets rid of excess earwax on its own. However, when this doesn’t happen, we could end up with blockages.
They can be quite painful, and can also lead to hearing difficulties. So, how to sort them out?
You could use a Q-tip, but this way you’re just pushing the earwax further in to the ear canal, thus making the situation much worse.
But, don’t worry. We have some top notch medical advice from Dr. David Hill.
You could make a great mixture, by mixing equal parts of vinegar and rubbing alcohol. With this mixture, you could loosen up the stubborn and painful earwax.
It’s that simple.
