The ear consists of three parts: the external ear, middle ear and inner ear. Each of those parts serves an important role in proper hearing. In addition, inner ear contains elements which are responsible for balance. The earlobe, being the most exposed part of the external ear, also affects the appearance of the face.
Ear rinsing means the rinsing of the external ear canal (the canal leading sounds to eardrum) with water in the body temperature in order to remove excessive wax, flaked epidermis a or foreign matter.
Wax is produced by wax glands in the wall of the external ear canal. Certain people have a tendency of excessive production of wax, and other people may produce impacted wax as a result of improper use of ear sticks. Impacted wax may deteriorate hearing or cause irritation of the skin of the external ear canal and pain connected with this.
