Op, I suggest cleaning your ears out more often! Its not even that hard to do...just q-tip it after every shower! It's kinda gross how you never knew about it .__.

20- I use q tips as well, I use them nearly every day actually. I don't know how to get clean ears without them quite honestly. However, Q tips aren't good, so use with caution OP.

Wet wash cloth. It's easier if you use the corners of it too. It's safer than jamming a q tip in your ear.

Q-tips are actually infamous for jamming earwax further and further into a denser piece of wax in the hole that is your ear canal.

It's actually best to just leave the earwax there. It has a function. It protects the ear canal from infection and other things. So removing it isn't really "cleaning" your ears, the earwax does that for you.

Yeah, but it can build up too much and affect hearing too. That and when a doctor looks in your ear, it's a bit embarrasing when you get his medical instrument covered in wax.

It usually only builds up if you produce too I much wax, like if you are sick, and if you are using a Q-tip, you can pack the earwax in and reduce your hearing, too. And the doctor shouldn't care, they throw away the tips of the thing they use to look in your ear.

It's not that they care, it just still embarrases me. Different strokes for different folks I suppose.

#6 My thoughts exactly. I'm not quite sure how one would go about bringing that up, especially if they aren't too close/comfortable with OP.

28 - just because my profile picture is of my cat doesn't mean I'm pretending to be one like other people on this site.
