Several Common Myths Related to Earwax Removal
Myth #1 – My ears make too much earwax!
Your ears make exactly the amount of earwax you need. Removing it too often, signals the cells that produce earwax to step up production because your ear canal is getting too dry. Ear cleaning should only be required for the outer ear alone.
Myth #2 – Cotton swabs are perfect for safe earwax removal
Not only are they not perfect for removing earwax, they can be dangerous. What you’re more apt to do is push the earwax farther down the ear canal until it becomes impacted. In addition to packing it against the eardrum where it can cause infection, you run the risk of piercing your eardrum if you get too aggressive.
Myth #3 – There are some great earwax blockage removal tips in online videos
Myth #4 – My ears will sort things out for themselves
