5. Your ear feels full or you can feel your earwax
If you can actually feel your earwax or your ear feels full, your ear is probably blocked up with earwax. You will need to see a doctor to get the blockage removed and your ears cleaned out. Remember, Q-tips or cotton swabs actually push earwax into your ear and can lead to damage and blockages. Don’t use them to clean your ears.
6. Your ear is itchy
If your ear is constantly itchy or way more itchy than usual, something is probably wrong. If you feel like your earwax is itchy, you may have an infection.
7. Your earwax is getting dry or dark
As you age, if your earwax feels thicker, drier, or looks darker than usual, it is probably just a sign of aging and nothing to worry about.
