E is for Earwax

It’s best to keep those hairpins, pens, q-tips and anything else you use, far away from your ear canal.

If you notice that your hearing feels worse or are experiencing discomfort, see a professional for assistance. Click for a short video demonstrating why q-tips are bad for you!¬†
