Earwax can change its color and based on it you can determine the health of your ears.
- If the earwax is grey and you are not experiencing any symptoms, then there’s nothing you should worry about. The grey color is a result of dust and usually, people who live in cities experience this.
- If you notice blood on the cotton swab after cleaning your ears you might have a perforated eardrum. This means that your ears have become prone to infections and you can notice a change in your hearing capabilities.
- Having a brown colored earwax means you are going through a very stressful period. You need to relax for a few days, stay away from stress and then check if the color has changed.
- If you notice black colored earwax more than once and you have a constant itching, then you should go and see your doctor because you might be suffering from a fungal infection.
