Earwax removal

what is earwax

Earwax is made in the outer ear canal. The skin in the outer ear canal has glands that produce earwax, also called cerumen.

When the cerumen is produced, the cerumen slowly makes its way to the opening of the ear. Then the ear wax falls out or is removed when you wash. The outer ear canal makes earwax all the time, so the canal always has enough cerunem in it.

So why do we need cerumen? Cerunem has several funttions. Ear wax protects and moisturizes the skin of ear canal, preventing dry, itchy ears. Cerunem contains special chemicals that fight off infections. Finally, ear wax acts as a shield between the outside world and the eardrum. When dust, dirt, and other things enter your ear, the ear wax traps them so they can't travel any further.

If you want to get rid of cerunem, here's what you need to do: nothing! For earwax removal you have to do nothing!

You can wipe the outside of your ear but don't poke inside your ear for ear wax removal. Poking can push and pack the cerunem further in the ear.

Sometimes ear canals make extra cerumen, known as earwax impaction. Doctors can prescribe medicines that are placed in the ear for earwax removal.

Cerumen is a mixture of viscous secretions from sebaceous glands and less-viscous ones from modified apocrine sweat glands. The primary components of earwax are shed layers of skin, with 60% of the earwax consisting of keratin, 1220% saturated and unsaturated long-chain fatty acids, alcohols, squalene and
69% cholesterol.
