  1. Do you ever worry about using irrigation when you don't have a view of the ear drum? Potential for getting water into the middle ear if there is an unknown perf. Ever tried a vacuum? Reach much further and then the curettes.

  2. Is that painful having the irrigation done. I don't think I get ear wax build up. I will use a qtip after swimming or showering but never have much wax come out.

  3. +Dr Vaughan Just wondering about what you said about you having a tremor is it due to a problem with discs in your C spine. I only ask because I have a tremor due to that and Dr Gilmore had the same thing before having fusion surgery done

  4. Always interesting and informative! I really love when I see you have a new video out! Keep up the great work!

  5. Can he hear colors now?

    But for real, can the average joe buy an irrigation thing like that and lighted extractors? My husband is prone to large wax masses and we usually just use warm water + h2o2 and have him lie on the couch while it softens up, then spray it out with one of those rubber bulbs they give you for babies.

  6. You have the nicest patients! My hubby and I are in our early 50's. Last couple of years, hubby started getting what I call "old man ear hairs". I pluck those babies…and my dear hubby good naturedly abides it. It's akin to the 1 "old lady chin hair" I get. Hubby reached up to pull it off 1 day, thinking it was just a loose hair. When it didn't budge, he laughed..I feigned horror, then went and got the tweezers after it too. #GettingOldAintForSissies

  7. Dr Mark please come to Nottingham and do an Earwax Roadshow.💖I would love to meet you and let you look in my pots of gooey gold for nuggets😉

  8. Interesting, I heard syringing can cause or worsen tinnitus, how does this which seems way more aggressive not cause it?

  9. Do you have a new person working the camera? I got a bit motion sick and found it hard to watch. Otherwise great content doc!

  10. Hearing aids are notorious for blocking the ears up with wax, aren't they? Don't they prevent the wax from being able to drain freely? I know my grandparents never had issues with wax impactions until they started wearing hearing aids. Maybe the wax also gets thicker with age?

  11. Why ur patients go to the ENTs they special tools they used to down in the ear canal. I have been going to ENT over 14 yrs. They even have vacuums machine that suck all the wax out.

  12. What a great instrument for irrigation! Way better than a big syringe .I'll bet he can hear a lot better.

  13. Why leave that loose ear wax around the inside? It's gross. I understand you need some wax,but that looks awful!!

  14. I wish I had that irrigation waterpik when I was doing era cleanings.  I had a syringe and an IV catheter.

  15. how do i know if i need to go to one of these people? like i can hear fine but i always feel like they are clogged kinda

  16. I had a family doctor stick something in my ear and remove a piece of hard wax and I thought he was going to bust my eardrum. He was digging and not looking with anything and my ear bleed a little when I got home

  17. Oh, how I was I could get this for my daughter and myself. I was born without a right ear. They made me an 👂 with 🐒 cartilage. I'm always being poked at by friends and family. They say when I laugh, it sounds like a 🐒. My daughter has health issues. Very small 👂 canal in the right ear. I'm so gentle when I wash her ears out. But, when I get done or she says Momma, you're pulling all of my stuffing out. Now I won't be able to say *I didn't hear you! Learning how to play games way too soon. She's 7!. Anyways, her 👂 can get cleaned today and tomorrow it will look like I haven't cleaned them in a month of Sundays.

  18. Do you make your patients put oil in their ears for a few days before seeing you ? Or do they come to you with completely dry ear wax ? Also, now both my ears are blocked and i'm going crazy !

  19. This is my first time watching an earwax video…I think I’m gonna stick to zit popping vids. This is too rich for my blood.


  21. Would like to see the end result of what came out of each ear….then you get the full affect and understand what was impacting the man's ears.

  22. Im pretty sure I saw part of a cockroach come out of that right ear. Goes to doc to have wax removed, naa we can leave a lil in that ear instead of getting it all out. But were going to charge you for the full bill amount fo sho!!
