Cotton Buds - Why You Must Not Use Them?

MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician, Vapi
Cotton Buds - Why You Must Not Use Them?

Cotton swabs or cotton buds, are commonly used in our daily lifestyle. Many people use it for various purposes, such as make-up, bacterial culture, and most commonly for extracting wax and debris from the ear. Even though they are sometimes handy in our busy schedule, they usually cause much more harm than benefits.

How are they misused?
Cotton buds are toothpick like pieces made of wood, plastic, or rolled paper, which have cotton stuck at both ends with a roundish edge. It came into existence during the 1920s for a safe purpose of ear cleaning by Leo Gerstenzang, when he saw his wife cleaning their baby’s ear with a toothpick. And, til now they are used by the general population for ear cleaning, but these hardly remove the outer debris which is stuck near the outer edges. Impressing it inside the ear canal only does further damage, by forcing the inner wax further inside. Sometimes extensive force also causes damage to the ear drums.

How does it cause the damage?
Applying a tool like the cotton bud inside the ear with hands usually creates a force that impresses upon the eardrum, also accumulating the surrounding earwax to that area, resulting in impaction of the wax. The force applied most often, if not always, causes a damage to the ear drums, which might cause severe pain, also leading to leakage, causing improper balance, deafness, and certain similar abnormalities.

Alternative measures
Although we are worried about cleaning our ears, it doesn’t really require our notice, since our usual showers allow an adequate quantity of water to enter the ears and clean the accumulated debris automatically. The structure, in which our ear canal is designed, is usually naturally assisting in cleaning up the unusual wax around the ear.

If there is an uncontrollable build up of earwax that is not cleaned off normally, you can always consult an ENT or any general physician and get it cleaned under medical surveillance, which is best advised.
Doctors and medical practitioners all around the world have been trying to spread the message of preventing the use of cotton buds for ear cleaning.

I have sinusitis and few months back developed a polyp in my right nostril. I have read a lot about polyps and sinus and I concluded there has to be something that's triggering my problem. Would it be wise to consult an allergist? I have been to many doctors (not an allergist yet) but all of them suggest surgery.

ENT Specialist, Aurangabad
Nasal polyp mostly requires surgery. Pathology causing polyp usually decides about further management. If you are having nasal allergies symptoms like lot of sneezing and itching then you may consider visiting an allergy expert.

Hi, One of my nostrils is blocked all the time, I am 17 (male). Is there anything I should do?
Hi Nose block will be due to different reasons. It may be structural problems such as oolyps or DNS. So for this you can do nasya ie putting oil in nostrils. Cocont oil should be filled in a dropper and give indirect heat ie heat in hot water bowl. Then put 4 dropsbin eaxh nosrril by closing the other. Do daily for 15 days. After head bath should not dry under fan.

I have problem in my left ear have clean it with needle by which l get to find some thing white substance in ear its solid in state.

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
The white thing you found was impacted wax. It can be cleared by a process called syringing. Go to a nearest ent surgeon for that. Never try to do it with a needle as it can injure your ears and cause permanent damage.
