Every part of the human body has a unique and specific function. When they aren’t functioning properly or when your body is worn down, it has the amazing ability to exhibit warning signs. The ear is no exception: it will give you warning signs that shouldn’t be ignored, so pay attention.
#7 Liquid ear wax
If you notice liquid ear wax, you may be having an inflammation. It’s a good idea to see a doctor.
#6 Ear wax that smells unpleasant
An unpleasant smell from your ear wax indicates an infection in the middle ear. If you hear a noise or your ear pops from time to time, you should visit an ENT immediately.
#5 White color ear wax
This signals a lack of vitamins and microelements essential for the body, especially copper and iron. Adding beans and oatmeal to the diet can alleviate this issue.
#4 Black color ear wax
Black ear wax indicates a fungal infection, although if it happens only once there’s nothing to worry about. However, if your ears are itchy and they get worse, it’s time to see a doctor.
#3 Brown ear wax
Excess ear discharge of darker color indicates a stressful time and so, you should relax and take things easy for a while.
#2 Earwax with smears of blood
Traces of blood with ear wax indicate a perforation in the eardrum. If left untreated, this could lead to infection and even a loss of hearing. So, you better make a visit to your nearest ENT very soon.
#1 Grey ear wax
Grey ear wax is not something to be worried about. It’s just dust that is common to city dwellers.
