Anyways, about 2 months ago my roommate noticed that I clean my ears with q-tips everyday and told me he knew someone back in his hometown that had to have surgery because he pushed so much wax into his ear. So this freaked me out a bit and I stopped using q-tips since then.
However, ever since then my ears feel dirty and some of the stuff that comes out of my ears now is disgusting! I assume this is because my body is making excess wax because of my old habits. So anyways my question is, should I go back to q-tiping or should I tough it out and let nature work its course? I would really like to clean my ears more and I don't think I was pushing wax back to begin with but I don't really know.
Thanks for any advice and move / delete this if in wrong place or not enough content.
