Earwax, also called cerumen, is made by the body to protect the ears. The ear wax has both lubricating and antibacterial properties.
Most of the time, the old ear wax is moved through the ear canal by motions from chewing and other jaw movements and as the skin of the ear canal grows from the inside out. At that time, it reaches the outside of the ear and flakes off.
Earwax is produced in the outer part of the ear canal, not deep inside the ear.
We say that earwax is impacted when it has built up in the ear canal to such a point that there may be signs that something is not quite right.
It is important to note that, for most people, ears might never need cleaning — they are designed to clean themselves. Earwax buildup and blockages often happen when people use items like cotton swabs or bobby pins to try to clean their ears.
This only pushes the earwax farther into the ears and can also cause injury to the ear.
