Earwax Blockage

Earwax blockage is when the body produces too much earwax or when existing earwax has been pushed deep inside the ear canal, ultimately blocking it.

Earwax blockages commonly occur when people try to clean their ears on their own by placing cotton swabs or other items in their ears. This often just pushes wax deeper into the ear, rather than removing it.
