Where is earwax produced?

 
Cerumen or earwax, which is a protective oily secretion is produced in the external ear. This secretion is regularly disposed from the inside out. Normally, dust, particles, foreign bodies, microorganisms coming from the external environment adhering to the external ear canal are ejected by this regular self-cleaning request.
 

What are the benefits and tasks of earwax?

 
"Earwax" is a useful antiseptic secretion. The production and structure of this epidemic (such as dry earwax and oil ear wax) can vary depending on the genetic characteristics and whether the skin is oily or not. Ingredients contained in the earwax prevent virus, bacteria and fungal growth. It also has alcohol-like content that insects don't like at the same time.

Ears that are not in Asia and Asia produce different ear secretion according to scientists at Monell Institute in Philadelphia. Chromosome 16 is home to a "wet" or "dry" gene for the wax - the wet wax variant is dominant.

A minor change in the ABCC11 gene is related to both dry type earwax and the axillary body odor seen in Chinese, Japanese and Korean individuals.

The American study measured the concentration of 12 volatile organic compounds found in the earwax in Eastern Asian and white male groups, with 11 of the 12 compounds presenting the Caucasus ear with larger amounts of scented compounds.


Can smell of earwax provide information about the any disease or ethnicity!

 
Recently, researchers have begun to study whether the smell of earwax can eventually be used to detect the disease in our body. In a rare genetic disorder known as maple syrup urine disease, it has been investigated whether or not a simple diagnosis can be made with earwax examination. (source link >> Earwax Odor Can Offer Information About Disease, Ethnicity)
 
This study, conducted by researchers at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, explored how health information could be derived from the ears. Research has shown that a gene called ABCC11 that tends to smell under the seat of a person is also related to the color and texture of the earwax. A variant of ABCC11, normally found in people of East Asian origin, causes dry, white earwax and less body odor; Another variant of the gene, usually found in people of African and European origin, causes earwax, which tends to cause age and yellow-brown color and more body odor (source link >> Secretion secrets: things you didn’t know about ear wax).
 
In studies that associate body odor with the disease, ABCC11 has constituted the link between the two. For example, a 2009 study published in The FASEB Journal found that the variant of the fragrant armpit and the wet ear occlusion gene was associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. It was emphasized that the type of earwax may be associated with a gene that causes bad smells under the armpit. In early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, life-saving clues may have been highlighted (source link >> Association between breast cancer risk and the wild-type allele of ...).

Researchers at the Monell Institute said "smells in the smell of ear can tell us what a person eats and where they eat." have made the statement. It has been emphasized that "earwax, as a source of information, its potential is a neglected body secretion" (source link >> Earwax - Monell Chemical Senses Center).

I've added a video on youtube to the topic below:

The cells in the ear canal are unique in the human body!

 
The cells in the ear canal are unique in the human body - hücr they migrate. Birkaç An ink can be ejected into the eardrum and can be traced within a few weeks, and the progress of the ink can be seen by the movement of the cells. Without such a thing, the small area of the ear canal would soon be filled with dead cells created by the natural process of shedding the skin. This movement also allows the candle produced by the modified sweat glands that change the ear canal to be pushed outwards. The normal movements of the jaw are thought to be helpful in this movement through eating and speaking.

How should we clean our ears?

 
Normally, you can use a simple and practical method to accelerate the removal of dirt in our ears. If your eardrum is healthy and normal, you can transfer warm water (no shampoo, soap, detergent residue, cold or warm) to the external ear canal. Transfer the water slowly to the outer ear path before leaving, and then flip your head over the towel. Get out. You can do the same on the other ear. If you want the moisture in the ear canal, you can keep the hair dryer in the low setting for 1-2 minutes in the external ear canal. In the meantime, if you pull the earplate backwards and upwards, the outer ear canal is fully opened. This way you can dry both ears. So there's no need to use a cotton swab!

How do ENT specialists clean or remove earwax?

 
Ear wax accumulates and can cause hearing loss when it blocks the external ear canal (impacted earwax). Regular swabs from earpads can accelerate the accumulation of earwax. It causes the aqueous part in the cerumen to be absorbed and the oily part is dried and pushed towards the eardrum in the outer auditory canal.

Aspiration of earwax by endoscopy or microscope under microscope is the most recommended application. Ear cleaning in the form of ear cleaning, to damage the eardrum and the bottom of the membrane hole if there is a risk of serious infection and middle ear trauma.

Below you can watch the video of endoscopic earwax aspiration:


What does a cotton swab stick do?

 
Cotton swab cleaning rods are produced for the cleaning of curved areas of the auricle. As a little writing on the boxes, do not "insert into the outer auditory canal!" or a similar statement. It is not appropriate to insert the ear cleaning rods into the outer ear canal.

Eardrum trauma due to ear cleaning stick

The ear cleaning sticks can cause the following problems when they are routinely inserted into the external ear canal:
 
• Removal of the protective barrier layer in the external ear canal and predisposition to external ear canal infections (fungal and bacterial infections, swimmer's ear ...)
• Absorbing the aqueous part of the earwax and depositing the solid part of the earwax into the earwax and depositing the dirt on the eardrum.
• Eardrum trauma. Occasionally, direct trauma to the eardrum can result in membrane perforation, ossicular injury, and permanent hearing loss. There are patients who forget the cotton swab in his ear and hit the phone or put his head on the pillow with a cotton swab. In the above and below photo, it is seen that there is a localized bleeding area after the cotton swab contact. In this way, as the ear ossicles and the inner ear are trauma, nerve death may also occur in the inner ear at the same time.

Clean ear
 
The outer ear canal, as seen in the photo below, is immaculate, unstained, although in fact many people normally want it to be; The absence of a protective ring-shaped layer of dirt in our external ear can cause bacteria, viruses and fungi to easily infect the skin of the external ear canal.

Clean ear
 
If you are planning to enter the pool, your ears have to be dirty ... Due to the effect of chlorine in the pool water and the prolonged contact with the water, the swimmer's ear can become much easier to develop.
