A Doctor Says Putting A Q-Tip Inside Your Ear Is A BIG Mistake! This Is How You Should Clean Your Ears

The earwax inside the ears has a purpose, which is protecting the ear canal. It actually helps the ear clean itself and stay lubricated, protecting it thus from bacteria, water, insects, fungi, etc. the earwax is also called cerumen, which is the medical term.


The cerumen represents a protective barrier which saves the delicate and the sensitive skin inside the external auditory canal from harm.

From time to time, the earwax accumulates in the ear in greater quantities. The majority of people do not know how to use the Q-tips and put them inside their ears in order to clean them. Even though it sounds weird, the ear wax is actually good for you. Placing a Q-tip anywhere with the exception of the outermost parts of the ear can cause a lot of harm to your health.

It is recommended that when there is some earwax in your ears, you just leave it alone. The ear has a magically, wonderfully working system which works in the following way: the skin grows outward gradually and it almost forms a little conveyor belt that carries the earwax out.

Doctors suggest that when there is a cerumen buildup in your ears, you do not reach for the cotton swab, as it will just shove the cerumen right down the ear canal and it will make it stuck there.
