Was getting a load of minor ear infections followed by colds and it was pissing me off. Went to the doctor in France when I couldn’t speak any French and he syringed my ears without asking me.
Out of each ear he pulled an absolute mountain of wax. A bit like that bit in Shrek where he pulls the wax out of his ear and uses it as a candle.
Just turns out I’m a waxy man. Sometimes I’ll just wake up and start showering and a big lump of wax will fall out of my ear onto me and I don’t understand how it’s grown into a sizeable ball overnight.
I got water in my ear during a shower the other day. My hearing was really weird for the ages, until I turned my head sideways and whacked my head on the other side to get the water out. I must have looked really weird doing that in the Co-op.
In-earphones irritate my ears horribly (and, further to my post upthread are covered in wax whenever I remove them, which is just a bit grim tbh). That said, they don’t leave anything in your ears. The problem with cotton buds isn’t really the size but that bits can flake off and infect your ears.
This thread is great, it’s a return to the good old days. I was really pleased to see a story about someone pooing themselves but I would agree a doctor visit may be in order. I’ve had 3 different doctors fingers up my arse in the last 6 months but it’s led to me getting it all fixed in the end
