Earwax is an important natural element that our bodies produce to protect us from harmful bacteria & objects. However, when earwax builds up too much it can prove to be harmful. A common misconception is to clean your ears with a cotton swab, this, however, can lead to further damage. At AFC Urgent Care Swampscott, our physicians can assess your ear and use safe methods to remove excess wax. 

Some symptoms you may get are:

  •        Fullness in the ear
  •        A clogged sensation
  •        Partial hearing loss
  •        Ringing, or noises in the ear
  •        Itching
  •        Odor
  •        Discharge
  •        Coughing

At AFC Urgent Care Swampscott, we provide ear cleaning services on a walk-in basis, seven days a week!
