Earwax removal appears to remove portions of someone’s brain

How does someone not know they have all this inside them?

I ended up with a peanut sized impacted ball of wax douched out of my ear. I have a little ear pick tool that I regularly use, but got monster waxy buildup just beyond its reach.

Those earigator vids are nasty, but satisfying.

Where do you have this done?

That happened to my cousin. She was like six years old. Adults have no excuse at all.

Otoscopes are dirt cheap.

My brother went deaf in one ear, went to the DR, they did this and he walked out hearing.

What is this? A spin off of Dr. Pimple Popper?

Can I do this at home with my WaterPik? Or do I have to get it professionally done by a nurse or doctor?

I only recently learned that I have an unusually long ear canal.

That just means you have less brain, r10.

I need to have this done. Instead I will do it myself using hydrogen peroxide to loosen the wax.

Those aren't even as remotely horrifying as it gets - check out youtube for stuff that will make you vomit a little inside your mouth.

You can do it yourself or go to a doctor. I did it myself with a kit and it got the wax out but I felt like I had water trapped in my ear for a couple years after. Never after the doctor did it.

I get a hard-on every time I see that Wush commercial.

This explains the MAGA movement. Less brain equals less critical thinking.

I had more than this when I had "swimmer's ear" back in the 80s

I had an ENT Specialist remove it a few weeks ago, but I still have a hollow sound in my left ear. I'll probably need to follow up to get a hearing aid.

R3 The nurse practitioner at my hospital. Doc examine prior. I had to work on melting the ball down with generic ear drops (peroxide and probably water) days before the irrigation. The tool just looked like a little nozzle they screwed onto a simple squirt bottle. Some ear drops have that tooltip but it's on a small syringe. The nurse went through one and a half large squirt bottles dislodging that thing. (My ear canal is small and extra twisty only on that side.)

Someone on DL posted that they watched blackhead popping and ear wax removal on youtube. When I put that into the youtube search field, it came up with really scary clips of people with blackheads in their ear canals having them popped. It was mesmerising but disgusting.

The worst ones are when they pull a cockroach out. There was a clinic in India that used to post them to youtube.

Has anyone ever tried ear candles? That melts the wax a bit and then sucks it out. Then you can cut open the “candle” paper and see how dirty your ear was.

It’s an odd, but fun, theme for a party. Especially for competitive people.

Microsuction is the preferred method of ear wax removal these days. They put a needle into your ear and it sucks the wax out. it is less damaging to the ears than the traditional syringing method.

by Anonymousreply 26June 4, 2024 1:51 PM

I had it done once due to an intense ear ache and the amount of shit that came out was disgusting!

I could suddenly hear ten times better in that ear than the other which was strange, so even if only one ear is the problem have the doctor clean out both.

by Anonymousreply 27June 4, 2024 3:45 PM

I once had a huge amount of wax impairing my hearing so badly that after it was suctioned out, I could hear the tissues rustling in my pocket as I walked. It eventually went away as my ears adjusted but it was amazing.

We used to do the ear candling regularly, but there are all these warnings against it now.

Thinking about going back to it anyway.

by Anonymousreply 30June 12, 2024 4:05 AM

Thought the ear candling was proven to be an easily disproved scam.

My doctor always checks my ears and tells me they're clean.

I made a butter cow out of my salvaged ear wax.

I tried candles but they were too smokey.

by Anonymousreply 34June 12, 2024 1:18 PM

It was, R31. It’s ineffective and does nothing.

My cat would go crazy sniffing my earwax.
