Why Is Ear Wax A Good Thing?

Doctor Joe Griffith, doctor of audiology and the owner of Accessible Hearing Aids would like to explain to you why ear wax is a good thing.  Ear wax has a protective function. Often it can indicate the state of your health.  Basically, ear wax has three functions:

  • It keeps your ear canal lubricated.
  • It prevents your ears from itching.
  • It prevents pollutants from entering your inner ear.

If you notice earwax that is bloody, black, or has an unpleasant smell, it’s important that you make an appointment right away.
