Otolaryngologists Erich Voigt and Jacqueline Jones debunk 11 myths about the ear and nose. They talk about how to properly stop a nosebleed, clean your ears, and protect yourself from hearing loss. They also explain that earwax is good for your ears – it has antimicrobial properties that protect the insides of your ears. In fact, overcleaning can cause swimmer’s ear.
