Swimmer’s ear affects a lot of people each year. When water gets trapped inside the ear canal, the germs and particles within the liquid can cause a severe infection. This can result in pain, discomfort and most cases, an inability to fall asleep. When administering an ear candle, your ear canal will spread because of the heat, causing the water to disappear. Also, the additional wax may fall off, causing the bacteria to be unable to find refuge inside the earwax cavities.
