Is Ear Wax Normal?

 Ear wax is normal and has more than one purpose,

-Protects the ear canal from bacteria and germs that can cause an infection.

-Keeps out dust, dirt and other particles from entering the ear canal.

-Serves as a waterproof liner.

Did you know that ear canals are self-cleaning? Ear wax should only be removed if symptoms are present. Here is a list of some signs to look out for:

-Hearing Loss

-Dizziness

-Ear Pain

-Itchiness

*Do not push cottons swabs in your child’s ear as this can cause more problems later on.

 Is your child experiencing any of these symptoms? Do you have concerns related to ear pain or wax build up?  If so give us a call today to schedule an evaluation, same day appointments available.
