Cleaning and getting rid of ear wax is a common habit but most people do not know that earwax has a defensive capacity, it protects your ear and the colour of earwax indicates the state of a person’s health and his wellbeing –
Grey colour Earwax - If the earwax is of grey colour, then it might be because of dust or pollution and you need not worry about it.
Traces of Blood in the Earwax: If there are traces of blood in your ear wax then this means that the eardrum is infected and you should consult a doctor for this.
Brown colour Earwax - If the earwax is of brown colour, then it might be because of extreme stress and you need to relax in a calm and peaceful environment.
Black colour Earwax - If the earwax is of black colour, then it might be because of fungal infection and you should visit a doctor
Earwax with an unpleasant smell – If you experience unpleasant smell from your earwax, then you might have a disease inside your ear and you need to visit an ENT specialist to get the same treated.
