Woman removes stomach-churning clumps of wax from her mum’s ear with nifty gadget… and she even VIDEOS it to watch back
LET'S not beat around the bush here – you've clicked on this story which means you're probably someone who loves watching pimples being popped or picking scabs.
But if you're looking for a gross new trend to binge watch, then we have some VERY good news.
As well as providing us with some excellent life hacks and fashion tips, TikTok is also full of "earwax extraction" videos – and we're warning you now, it's not for the faint-hearted.
Earlier this month, secondary school teacher Megan posted a video of her pharmacist sister rummaging around in her mum's ear with her nifty new wax removal tool.
The device – which she bought from Amazon – has a small light on the end so you can see right down the ear canal.
And if we weren't already tempted to buy one, it also synchs up to a smartphone which allows others to take a peak inside your ear too.
In the clip, Megan's sister carefully uses the curved end of the tool to get around an enormous ear wax plug.
Shocked by the sheer size of it, she says: "Oh my god, that's a HUGE piece."
After a couple of tries, the pharmacist finally gets the entire chunk of wax out in one piece and places it on a piece of kitchen roll with the other smaller chunks.
While her sister goes back in for more, Megan pauses to compare the size of the ear wax plug with her finger.
NHS guidance for ear wax build up
Earwax usually falls out on its own. If it does not and blocks your ear, put 2 to 3 drops of olive or almond oil in your ear twice a day for a few days.
Over 2 weeks lumps of earwax should fall out of your ear, especially at night when you're lying down.
There's no evidence that ear candles or ear vacuums get rid of earwax.
Speak to a pharmacist about earwax build-up. They can give advice and suggest treatments.
They might recommend chemical drops to dissolve the earwax. The earwax should fall out on its own or dissolve after about a week.
Do not use drops if you have a hole in your eardrum (a perforated eardrum).
"Oh my god Mom," she said. "For frame of reference, look at my hand!"
The NHS website urges people NOT to use fingers or foreign objects like cotton buds to remove ear wax – and in a separate video, Megan revealed that her sister is a professional pharmacist while her mum is a trained nurse herself.
Megan's clip has racked up over 412,000 "likes" on TikTok and left followers stunned.
One joked: "I bet she can hear colours now."
Another added: "She'll be able to hear ants walking!"
A third wrote: "Wondering if I need to clear out my husband's ears – he can never hear me when I ask him to help out around the house!"
