Never use cotton buds They are meant to be used for cleaning the pinna or part of external ear & never to be poked inside The external ear skin is in continuity with pinna, ear canal & the tympanic membrane. Tiny flakes of skin getting shed off are mistaken for wax in the ear which is not the wax actually. There is a vicious cycle of itch~skrach~itch is set Using ear buds is strictly No No Get the cotton stuck inside by a qualified Allopathic ENT surgeon to avoid damage to the delicate structures like tympanic membrane
