Something so gross you can’t look away. You want to – but you can’t! The video below is that very thing! The man we are about to meet is from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He has an earwax (also known as cerumen) problem – and that is putting it mildly!
We are about to see just how much ear wax he has in that left ear! Prepare yourself, you may gag or feel queasy! Because of the gross factor, the video has gone viral.
What this video teaches the rest of us is that it is imperative to clean your ears! You can just see the nasty build-up under the shiny surface, watch as is comes out.
The ball of wax was rather large. The man was under general anesthesia! I don’t think anyone could stay still for something like this!
Warning: the video may be disturbing to some viewers. A buildup of earwax like this is called an impaction, and it can affect your hearing. People who wear earplugs or hearing aids are more susceptible to impaction.
Symptoms of an impaction include a cough, dizziness, ringing in the affected ear, an odor coming from the affected ear or an ache in the affected ear. According to healthline.com, the safest way to remove earwax is to see your doctor.
Cotton swabs may just push the wax further down the ear canal. You can try some over the counter earwax softeners at home. If they don’t work, see your doctor! Don’t be like this guy!
