  1. I wonder how far people are sticking q-tips in their ears?

    I don’t use them daily (I guess about twice a week), but thanks to the insane wax factories my ears are, combined with psoriasis (which makes my ears itch like crazy) that mostly affects my scalp and ears, I can’t not use them. I mainly use them for the outer ear and *just* inside. If I didn’t, it’s not really a pretty sight.

    and even after this, and many concerts (without ear plugs…they never fit and make my ears itch even more), I still have near perfect hearing, which baffles the ENTs I’ve seen over the years.

  2. I’ve been trying to cut down on my Q-Tip use… mostly I use them to swab out water after my morning shower, because I go crazy when the water in my ears starts to trickle afterwards. But, yeah, must start only using on the outside bits…
