Earwax is an important part of our anatomy. It helps protect our ears from infections, small insects & potential ear damage; but when it builds up too much, it can lead to pain, dizziness, and other hearing problems. A common misconception is using a cotton swab to clean your ears is the most effective way to do it. However, this is not true at all, a cotton swab could potentially damage your ears even more.
It’s best to seek medical attention when ear problems arise. At AFC Urgent Care New Bedford, our physicians can assess your ear and use safe methods to remove excess wax. If you are experiencing a blockage in your ears or experiencing a painful ringing after traveling we can help!
