Preventing Ear Wax Build Up On Your Hearing Aid
One of the top causes of hearing aid failure is due to blockage from ear wax. Also known as cerumen, ear wax is a sticky brown substance secreted by a gland in the outer ear. Ear wax varies in consistency and appearance depending on its freshness but can be pasty or flaky, and it may be dark brown, tan or golden in color. Ear wax accumulates in different quantities from one person to the next.
