Have a doctor ever told you to not put anything smaller than your elbows?
It’s for a good reason. Many people use cotton tips to relieve the itch in their ears, thinking that it would help with wax removal.
However, the cotton tip only compacts the wax further. Making it more difficult for health professions at removing the wax.
Furthermore, there is a very high incident where the individual punctures a hole in their ear drum.
Just remember ‘accidents happen’ but not if you can avoid it all together.
