GAVE ME SORE EARS - I'VE BINNED IT
on 15 July 2014
I generally don't like messing around inside my ears because it is too easy to do potentially irreversible damage.
How far in? How to move it around? Does it really remove much stuff?
I got sore and inflamed ears after using this thing. I was careful not to push it in too far and was very gentle in moving it around. Intuitively, there is something wrong about shoving a piece of hard metal in your ears.
I find it extremely difficult to believe doctors designed or recommend this.
Stick to olive oil and a water filled syringe. You can even buy small water syringes to do it yourself. But ultimately, if you suffer from the problem of wax build up, there's no substitute for visiting the nurse at your local medical practice.
Look after your ears - you only get one set!!
