Earwax is your friend
Did you know that the wax inside your ears is unique? Several glands on the inside of your ear canal produce your own recipe that works for you. Ear wax is healthy, here are three reasons why:
Antifungal & Antibacterial.
As earwax moves out of your ear canal it cleans and protects from viral, fungal and bacterial infections.
Ear wax offers protection from dirt, dust, and debris. Did you know it also repels insects?
Your ear wax keeps the skin in the ear canal from becoming dry and itchy.
If you do have an issue with too much ear wax, please visit with your primary care provider. It is recommended that you do not clean your ears with a cotton swap as ear wax can be pushed and compacted in the inner ear.
