Ear wax is a very important substance. It cleans, lubricates and prevents infection in the ear canal. Never use cotton buds, matchsticks, hair grips etc to “clean” your ears. As we get older, ear wax gets drier and the natural cleansing action breaks down causing it to block the ear at times. It is not necessary to remove wax unless it is causing a problem such as muffled hearing. Occasionally it can cause vertigo.
