Earwax

Today my ear was itching. I had my husband look in it and he said it was full of earwax. It occured to me I really didn’t know much about earwax. So I went on a quest. Earwax isn’t truly wax. It is a combination of sloughed skin cells that have fallen off inside the ear, bits of hair and secretions from the ceruminous glands.

Why does the body do this? It is all about protecting the inner ear. There are times that the body can produce too much.When you move your jaw muscle, you move ear wax up and out of the ear. Simply running warm water in the ears at shower time should help.
