Did You Know?

Normal amounts of earwax is healthy. It serves as a self-cleaning agent and has antibacterial properties. It’s also protective and lubricating. The absence of earwax can result in dry, itchy ears. If you think you have too much earwax, put the q-tip away and visit a healthcare provider.
