Earwax is an important part of our physiology, it protects the ear from damage and infections. However, when it builds up too much, it can lead to pain, dizziness, and other hearing problems. A common misconception is, cleaning your ears with a cotton swab is the most effective way to clean them. Cleaning your ears out with a cotton swab can lead to further damage, so it’s best to seek medical attention when ear problems arise.
At AFC Urgent Care North Bergen, NJ our physicians can assess your ear and use safe methods to remove excess wax. If you need earwax removed because of blockage or have pain we can help get rid of it. Some more symptoms include:
- Fullness in the ear
- A clogged sensation
- Partial hearing loss
- Ringing, or noises in the ear
