Ear wax is a normal part of the body that helps protect against harmful virus & ear damage. However, too much earwax buildup can lead to certain amounts of pain & hearing problems. Cleaning your ears with a cotton swab is the incorrect way to clean your ears, it is unsafe & a common misconception of how to clean your ears. It’s best to seek medical attention when ear problems arise. At AFC Urgent Care Dedham, our physicians can assess your ear and use safe methods to remove excess wax.
