Earwax actually protects our ears
January 7, 2017 1:07am CST
I've read this article in yahoo detailing that the gross looking ear wax inside our ears were actually meant to protect our ear canal from outside threats. But you need to clean it every once in a while, at least once in a week will do. But it's too late for me, because I'm half deaf now because of excessive ear cleaning. Then I realized it has also happened to mom as well which is why she's deaf too. I could still hear from my other ear but it's very low. I wanted to buy hearing aide but it's extremely expensive. Maybe I should start learning sign languages.

Yes, ear wax is good for your ears, but excessive ear wax hinders hearing and needs to be gotten rid of in a manner that will not harm your ears. I'm sorry you and your mom are almost deaf because of excessive ear cleaning.
