Think Earwax is Gross?
While earwax is entirely normal, it still has a stigma that stops it from being a dinner-time conversation. It more frequently comes up in schoolyard conversations between intrigued eight year olds, or (as patients have told us), a group of adults on the golf course rushing the game so they can make their ear appointments on time.
At the Ear Hygiene Clinic, earwax is no strange sight or topic of discussion. It’s in everyone’s ears, and it serves useful purposes of moisturising the ear canal, trapping dust, and preventing infections.
However, even we get surprised occasionally!
