Word! Cerumen

Word! Cerumen

Cerumen

(En español: Cerumen)

Say: suh-roo-men

This word means wax. But not just any wax - it's earwax! Sticky cerumen lines the outer ear canal and helps trap dirt, germs, and other stuff that gets in your ear. So listen up - that gunk in your ears has an important job!
