Many people produce more earwax than is necessary or have a problem getting rid of it. As a result, the wax gradually builds up to form a solid mass instead of being disposed of in everyday life as normal.
Another common occurrence is the overuse of cotton swabs or bobby pins on the ears; much of the time, this can result in wax being pushed farther into the ear canal. This can result in serious complications.
A range of difficulties can arise from such impaction, from the relatively innocuous to the life-impeding. These include irritation, dizziness, earache and a ringing in the ears, but can become as serious as an overall loss of hearing.
