Many people take for granted the use of cotton swabs for removing earwax from the ear canal. The truth is that cotton swabs should never be inside the ear, and actually push wax deeper and can lead to impactions and even lead to ear infections. Pushing a cotton swab into your ear can cause injury to your eardrum. This is why there is a warning on every box of cotton swabs.
You may find some earwax on the top of your cotton swab when used in your ear, but the cotton swab is actually pushing the earwax deeper into the ear canal. (not successfully cleaning them). This can cause impaction, difficulty hearing and even eardrum perforations.
"Researchers found that around 66% of patients treated for traumatic eardrum perforations had caused the injury by sticking an "instrument" in their ear."Read more about the dangers of cotton swabs
Swabbing inside your ear can cause other serious problems including infection, rupture of the eardrum, and significant hearing loss.Read More
