Is this an ad for Q-Tips?

Gnarly!  About 15 years ago I got a really bad cold that settled in my ears. It hung around for a couple of weeks and was pretty bad.

About a month after getting over it I was taking a q tip to my ears and hit something hard inside my ear? I swished the q tip around and could feel something moving around inside my ear?!!!  So I took some tweezers and pulled out a 2" black leathery gross worm looking  thing.  

I'm guessing my ear was draining nasty crap during that bug that hardened up in there.

Don't use a Q-tip in your ear!

This is true.  Although some wax sticks to the q-tip, other wax is pushed further into the ear.  There are good ear cleaning kits out there with squeeze balls and a bit of oil to soften the wax and wash it out with warm water.

My 80 year-old cousin woke us a few weeks ago and suddenly couldn't hear well out of one ear.

I told her that good hearing doesn't usually go bad so rapidly and it could just be wax.

She went to her doctor, who sent her to a specialist, who had an assistant use a water pik to break the junk loose.  Now she hears ok out of both ears.

I really wish I hadn't watched that.

and I'm def not clicking on "watch more videos like this" Although it is probably in my ad rotation now

I get build up in my ears. It gets pretty hard.  About 2 months ago it was bad enough that I went to Costco to get my hearing checked. He says you got a lot of build up there. I went home & put hydrogen peroxide in each ear. Then irrigated with a large syringe. A couple times a day. Took about 5-6 days to get clear

I just use the air hose & blow it out the other side.
