    i always wondered about this, what are u suppose to do if you have excessive wax buildup if q-tips are literally doing more harm than good

    IIRC, your ears are self cleaning.

    Q-tips stimulates the production of more ear wax because it thinks something is in your ear and produces more ear wax to stop it from reaching your inner ear.

    I dunno if that's good or bad. Like someone posted, the wax is to protect the inside of your ear but we think of the wax as nasty b

    Q-Tips push all the ear wax back in. Use ear picks instead:

    Had my ears irrigated a few years ago bc the doc told me there was some buildup (probably from using tips).
    Threw my equilibrium off and almost passed out. I was appalled at what came out of my ears, literally like small rocks, but I felt like a new person after.

    It was done by my regular doc while I was being seen for a cold or something. They can do it on the spot, it isn't invasive or anything.
