    So recently, yesterday to be exact, I used a Q-Tip. My dumbass put that shit in a little bit deep (LITERALLY a little bit) and spin it around. When I pull it out, the cotton is gone, stuck inside my right ear. So now, my right ear is pretty much temporarily deaf until I get this cotton out. Can someone help? Tried shaking my head a bit, no luck. Tried dragging it out with another Q-Tip, also no luck. Searched online to see if there are other dumbasses like me and there were. Read what they said, and all said to go to the doctor. Now, I have no access to a doctor until Monday, the 17th of July. Will I be okay leaving this nasty cotton in my ear until Monday? Can I shower normally or do I have to try to block my ear to not let water in?
    I know this is a strange thread to post in a gaming-hacking forum, but holy shit. It feels so uncomfortable.

    actually north korea. please send help
    I shoved paper into my ear when I was in Kindergarten, I think my parents got it out with tweezers but I don't remember because it was a long time ago. I don't know how safe it is to do that on your own though.

    If you have no access to a doctor until Monday then go to a hospital... Don't leave shit festering in your ear!

    Had my mom take a look. She can't even see the cotton to take it out. So it must be REALLY deep.

    "Can you get it out with another q tip?" hahaha


    Sorry I know that's not adding to the conversation, but I saw that on the other thread posted, and it made me crack up.

    another dude said "edit: get a friend to remove it with tweezers or just pour some peroxide in your ear and let it bubble out. If you have your friend remove it, have him pull traction on the auricle superiorly and posteriorly, to straighten the ear canal, before he tries to visualize the cotton"

    Can't verify, but yeah?

    ;-; let's make this thread useful so dumbasses who commit the same mistake can find this.
    she looked at it before I tried with another Q-Tip. I can feel the cotton moving whenever I sneeze or create any wide movement with my mouth. (lol inb4 dick jokes)

    Dude said

    "So, I know this is a SUPER old thread, but I found it because I found myself in the same situation this morning and thought I would share with you how I solved my problem, in case this ever happens to you again (since, apparently, it's happened twice). After trying hydrogen peroxide, standing in the shower, and even earwax removal stuff, the crap that was STILL lodged in my ear and wouldn't budge. So, what I did was I went and bought one of those ear wax removal kits. In the kit is a little bulb that you use to suck water in and flush out your ear. I filled the sink with warm water, filled the bulb, and then put the small, skinny part in my ear canal and released water. I kept doing this, flushing it with the bulb and water, until I felt the blockage release and my hearing returned to normal. But I am never, EVER using Q-tips to clean my ears, ever again. I was terrified that I was going to suffer permanent hearing loss. :-/ Anyway, just thought I'd share what I learned."

    I don't see this ending well at all, this happened to me once but I completely destroyed my hearing, can't hear out of my left ear. Your best bet is to shove tweezers into your ear blindly and hope for the best

    Alright, well... we're going to take this down a few hundred notches and go back to helping him. Sounds a lot like that "rubbing semen on your face will promote facial hair growth" bs.
