Earwax is a helpful and natural part of your body’s defences. It protects your ear canal by trapping dirt and slowing the
growth of bacteria. It’s not known why some people experience earwax blockage or why earwax blockage often occurs

Signs and symptoms of earwax blockage may include:
Feeling of fullness in the affected ear
Decreased hearing in the affected ear
