well... around 8 years ago, I lost hearing in BOTH of my ear.
I went to the doctor
He actually use a funnel along with something that is similar to a vacuum. The funnel allow air to flow so I only hearing the movement of wind but only little pressure on the ear drum
I have to say... it was kind of gross.. I think the doctor had like... 10 different heads for the small vacuum machine for sanitary reason... but those ten heads actually ran out and he need to clean them to reuse them again....
(my father, watching on the side, said that there was around 3 CM^3 of stuff coming our from each ear... don't know if that is true or not =_=
additional info, yeah, I use cotton swap daily after shower.. that is ... if I shower daily =_=
Anyway, I found that it is the easiest time to clean year since that's when the canal are moist and easy to get stuff out.....
PS: I only picked my ear with my little finger, then actually pulled out a piece of ear wax that is about the same width as my finger nail =_= .... ew.......
