Lots of earwax, Is it normal?

 Claek -
My ears are producing a lot of earwax and feels like they are plugged up. I desperately want to remove these wax plugs without hurting the eardrum. Can you please advise me?
Thank you very much for your advice.

Firstly, wax is more common in men, those who smoke, chew gum, wear head phones a lot and those that work in noisy environments. However, bear in mind that Wax in the ear is important as it protects the ear cannel and prevents foreign bodies from entering the ear. One piece of advise:
To get rid of your wax, soften it with olive oil - 1 -2 drops twice per day for at least 1 week and then see the nurse at your GP surgery to have it professionally removed.
