Our ears naturally self-clean. Earwax, or cerumen, is a normal substance produced to help keep the ears clean and healthy. It prevents debris, dirt and other things from entering into the ear canal and also helps to fight infection.
Sometimes our bodies overproduce earwax, especially if we’re stressed or afraid. Earwax can vary in colour and texture, all depending on your health, diet and even ethnicity.
While your bodily functions may not always be attractive features, and may at times even be repulsive, it does not mean that there is something wrong with your health. There are many gross things about the human body that are totally normal and necessary. The most important thing is to pay attention to any changes as our bodies are always giving us clues about our health.
