    @UponAStar16 that HAS to be just for the morons who jam them into their ear canal/ear drum and mess their ears all up. Seriously. They are probably just covering their asses, because you cannot make a product so satiable and then advise against being satiated. ;)
    Yep, it's plausible deniability. There is no way those aren't for ears. There are two tips, one for each ear. If it was for nailpolish, it would be one tip like every other makeup applicator/brush. 
    Haha, sorry guys. I was actually going to post about this as soon as I saw the first comment. I'm hard of hearing so I've been going to audiologists since I was 3 years old and they ALL tell you NEVER to use Q-tips! The reason why is not because you can puncture your ear drum (you'd have to really jam it in there to do that), it's because you actually push more wax into your ear than you pull out. It can clog up your ears permanently or even get infected. Apparently it's pretty common for people to come in thinking they need hearing aids, but actually the years' build-up of compacted ear wax is so large it's impacting their hearing.

  • @books&;icecream - did your audiologist recommend a different tool for ear wax? I see things specifically made for ear wax removal at the drug store, not sure if those are okay or not. I'm not trying to go see my doctor regularly for ear wax removal. I always use q-tips, but I have one ear that's been bothering me for a while now and I'm thinking of switching to something else.

  • This is super TMI, but what the hell is up with the blood when I poop? It's bad enough that the iron pills my doctor has me taking constipate the hell out of me, but I get a good scare every couple of days now too! Doctor told me to eat more fiber and refused to give me a laxative recommendation. I'm not sure how much more fiber I can eat in a day.

  • I've been using Q tips in my ears since like age 12, and I can hear just fine.

    Sorry, quote box!
    In general, you are supposed to go to the audiologist or ENT every 1-2 years and they clean it out. It's a bit uncomfortable but you feel so clean after - similar to the dentist.

  • My insurance covers a yearly (maybe twice, but at least once) dental check-up. I have sincere doubts they cover a regular ear check-up. I bet I'd even have to go to my primary care doctor for a referral first.
