    I was just cleaning my ears and when I pulled the Q-tip out the cotton thing on the end was gone. I can still feel it in there. I can hear OK and it doesn't hurt, it just freaks me out that there's a cotton ball wedged in my ear canal. I tried to dig it out with a pen cap and haven't had any luck. This ever happen to any of you? any advice?

    You may have a lawsuit against the Q-tip manufacturer if they didn't provide adequate warnings. Lawyer up and go to a doctor and tell him you've lost partial hearing.

    I don't have tweezers. I guess I could go buy some. I tried hydrogen peroxide and dug around with a tooth pick but I think I'm just jamming the fucker deeper in there. Any chance it'll come out by itself?

    Get a long stick and push it through until the cotton comes out the other side.

    I bought the off brand q tips at the dollar store's going out of business sale for 50 cents. They were probably made in China.

    Have a person you trust look in your ear to see if it is visible. If it is, then have them carefully remove it with tweezers. Otherwise, go to the doctor, seriously, and make him/her take it out. Cotton shifts in your ear and you could get a nasty infection or have muffled hearing if you leave it in.

    I had one of those rubber iPod earbuds get stuck in my ear at the gym a few years ago. I was totally freaking out. After I got to my apt., I took my Oreck handheld vacuum, went to the bathroom, and stuck the hose against my ear. Even my Oreck was no match for that little fucker stuck in my ear. I made an appt. that day with an ear, nose and throat doctor. He got it out in less than 5 minutes. He said it was right next to my eardrum. Only me.:facepalm:
