Doctors Say That You Should Seriously, Stop Sticking Q-Tips In Your Ears


For the last time, doctors are desperately trying to warn you about this mindless habit which may be causing bodily harm. Whether this comes as a huge surprise or is old news, hear us out… Do yourselves a favor and stop sticking cotton swabs in your ears!

Sure it has a satisfying sensation and the gunk you pull out might make it look like you’re accomplishing something, but as doctors and probably your parents have warned you in the past- this is probably causing more harm that actually cleansing.

The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation have published an updated list of steps on handling earwax buildup.

While to some this info might be self explanatory, apparently there are still a few people who need to learn not to mess around with the insides of their ears. Continuous poking and prodding at them with objects smaller than your hands can cause you may suffer from ear wax impaction, and can even damage your hearing.
