Earwax is one of the barriers to protect the body. It can stick to foreign objects, protect the ear canal from dust, and reduce the growth of bacteria and mold in the ear.

However, when earwax accumulates too much and cannot be washed off naturally in the shower, it is easy to block. Earwax blockage often occurs in people with congenital oily ears. Oily earwax is easier to accumulate in the ear canal and is not easy to be discharged. People who wear hearing aids or often use earplugs are also prone to earwax accumulation, which can block them.

Congestion of earwax can sometimes cause the sense of hearing to be blinded. Ear pain, tinnitus, ear fullness, and ear itching are also symptoms of congestion.#earpick
