Cleaning The Ear.

For years, I used to use Hydrogen Peroxide drops and buds to clean my ears till an ENT specialist who I accidentally met on a plane trip told me that I should not. He suggested just the bud and if at all necessary to an ENT specialist. I have heeded his advice till date and have not had to go to any specialist for a cleaning session.

My cousin Shankar who has been to China and is fascinated by that country sent me a story about the ear cleaners of Chengdu and asked me rather plaintively “I wonder if this custom exist in some parts of India?” ¬†This does not exist in that part of the country where he lives but, I am surprised that he did not see this in the other parts that he has visited.

He asked the right person!

I promptly sent this link to him.

I would not dare opt for this service.  Would you?
