Bloqueo del oído con cera

El canal auditivo está revestido de folículos pilosos y de glándulas que producen un aceite ceroso llamado cerumen. Algunas veces estas glándulas producen más cera de la que puede excretarse hacia el exterior del oído. El exceso de cera puede endurecerse dentro del canal auditivo y obstruir el oído.Bloqueo del oído con cera
