What is Ear Wax ? (Section 1)

Ear Wax Removal Clinic Kirkby Lonsdale

Ear wax is a natural mix of secretions and dead skin found in the ear.

It’s not a bad thing, it helps to protect the ear against dust, dirt and bacteria.

Ear wax (cerumen to be official !) is made up of skin cells, dust and oily secretions from the sebaceous and ceruminous glands in the ear canal. The secretions lubricate the ear canal and prevent it from becoming too dry.

Your ear wax is probably not the same as someone else’s. The makeup of ear wax changes from person to person based on diet, age and race.

If you think you have ear wax call into the Hearing Centre in Kirkby Lonsdale and we can do a quick check to confirm.
