Often our ears feel stuffy which causes a lot of discomfort and irritation. It can make you feel a lot of pressure in your ears and cause ear pain. When your ears feel stuffy or full it probably means that you have clogged ears. We all have some ear wax which is a natural substance that protects our ears but when there is a lot of ear wax build-up it can take a toll on our health. It can cause ear pain and hearing problems and sometimes it can also damage our ears. It is very important to understand that our ears are the most sensitive part of our body and it's important to take proper care of our ears and ensure that no harm comes to them or our hearing abilities. Many people use earbuds to clean their ears and remove the wax but it's not a good idea to do so. Using earbuds can push the wax further up the ear canal and may end up damaging the sensitive part of our ears. This is why it's best to avoid using earbuds, keys or fingernails to clean your ears. It is always better to consult a doctor if you feel stuffiness in your ears and using home remedies to treat it. Remember to ask your doctor before you use any home remedy for clogged ears.
