Our LISTEN & LEARN webinar series continued this month with our second talk entitled, “To Q-Tip or Not To Q-Tip: How You Should and Shouldn’t Clean Your Ears”. In addition to the valuable information shared by our presenter and audiology doctoral extern, Nina Harris, we were joined by one of our Physician Assistants, Carolyn Lyn.

During this informative session, Carolyn and Nina also gave their professional advice on a number of questions raised by our listeners throughout the talk. 

Here are just a few of the listener submitted questions that were addressed during our webinar:

  • How to safely soften earwax at home
  • How to dry ears after showering without using Q-tips
  • What can cause itchy or flaky skin in the ears and how to treat it
  • How to properly wash your ears
  • Whether the use of hearing aids or earplugs leads to wax buildup
