Ear Wax: They do but you are generally not aware of it. Good for you. Cerumen is produced by glands in the ear canal . Dirt, debris, hair etc stick to it and eventually the wax dries and falls out removing these things. Cerumen (wax) is the self cleaning mechanism of the ear canal. Most people aren't aware of the wax. It is normal. Could be worse. I see patients every day who need to have me remove it. ...Read more
Tinnitus in left ear decided to use ear drops. 9 days later ear full of wax after pulling out the goo , still ringing ear still blocked :-( syringe?

At the same time, I advise caution when doing anything with the ear canal & if you're not sure of what you are doing or if things are going the right way then you should stop and see your doctor. Much better that than to cause any sort of complication. ...Read more
