Why do we have ear wax?

Our bodies produce ear wax as a form of protection, however, if earwax builds up it can lead to some painful complications. We here at AFC Urgent Care Beverly would like to advise you all not to use a cotton swab to clean your ears! It is a common misconception that a cotton swab is a correct device to use to clean your ears.
