Not all ears look the same inside. If you see something in the ear, chances are it’s earwax. While it might be a little gross to look at, ear wax helps keep your ears healthy and clean. At CellScope, we’re big fans of ear wax EXCEPT when it gets in the way of taking an ear exam. It can be frustrating when you finally get your child to sit still for an ear exam only to hear from the doctor that there’s too much wax to see the eardrum.
We want to keep making things easier for your family and are excited to introduce improvements to our eardrum finder. Now, the app will alert you if there’s too much wax to see the eardrum and remind you if the eardrum wasn’t found during the exam. Update your app by heading to the app store on your iPhone.
If the wax is impacted, it may need to be removed. Please don’t try to remove wax at home, rather, consult your primary care physician.
