Everyone naturally produces earwax. It’s a completely normal process, and the wax is beneficial because it can clean your ear. But sometimes the wax can build up, which can cause irritation, muffled hearing, or hearing loss. When that happens, it’s time to see a doctor.
Insider’s Caroline Aghajanian, Joe Avella, and Mikala Jones-Fielder visited Dr. Geoffrey Trenkle, an otolaryngologist at the Los Angeles Center for Ear, Nose, Throat and Allergy, to learn more about earwax and have their ears professionally checked. Dr. Trenkle can safely remove earwax by using either a curette or a vacuum device. He suggests to never try over-the-counter options to remove earwax and to stop using Q-tips because they may cause a perforated eardrum, which can lead to a risky surgery.
