Re: black earwax

Black ear wax means it's old wax. You should probably have a doctor clean your ears out for you. It's no big deal. They use a machine like a water pix and spray a high stream of warm water until the wax comes out. After I had my ears cleaned, my doctor told me to hold my ears under the shower a few times a month if they feel plugged.

Or, it could be dried blood from a time you stuck something in your ear and scratched it. Either way, time to get your ears cleaned.
