you have earwax because natural oils from your ear do not just slide out of your ear they form together and protect the ear drum from getting hurt but it is okay to get it taken out.

Black Ear Wax is usually old, built up ear wax. Fresh and new ear wax is a yellowish color.

If you take wax out of your ear then germs and other things can get in to your ear because when you had wax in your ear it had blocked all the germs out.

Ear wax is a normal product of the ear which protects the skin of the ear from water and infection. Ear wax is formed from wax glands in the external ear canal as well as other components such as dead skin, sweat, and oil.

ceruminous glands in the ear canalare the ones that prodcue ear wax.

User Avatar

Not necessarily. Ear wax is produced naturally as a protective coating for the ear canal, and irritation of the canal can cause increased production. When excessive ear wax has been removed, if there is no irritation the production of ear wax should return to normal.

See the doctor. It might just be ear wax you got in there. The doctors will take out the ear wax because the ear wax is blocking your ear drum so it plugged your ears. The doctor takes out your ear wax and your ear gets plugged but then later it opens and you can hear really well.

Ear wax is a sticky substance released by the Cerumen glands which are found only in the skin of the ear canals. The ear wax traps anything foreign that flies, crawls, or is blown in to the ear canals.

yes ear wax is used to make crayons, candles, ect. They take ear wax from the Bluerage dolphin, and Sometimes even from dead people if its still fresh in their ear.

Cerumen or Ear wax is formed by vestigial apocrine sweat glands in the external ear canal.

Try inserting an exactoknife into the ear canal and twist it until the ear wax falls right out.

Ear wax helps to keep your external auditory meatus and your tympanic membrane soft and pliable. If you remove the ear wax, your ear drum could dry out and crack.

Yes too much ear wax makes you death weirdly

Never use Q-tips; they push wax deeper into the ear and clog it, though most people's ears can process and break down this wax build up. Instead, use an ear wax softener, hot water, or see your ENT, who can "vacuum" out the wax.

Ear wax is not caused by eating too much butter. Ear wax is a natural substance in the ear canals that helps catch bugs, dirt, and so forth.
