Is it alright to remove earwax with cotton swab

Most of us have heard that cotton buds should not be used to clean earwax. But still when we wish to clean our ears we use them. So, the question here is that is it actually dangerous to remove earwax with cotton swab?sni

Prof Dr Khalid Cheema an ENT specialist from Gujranwala says that people need to understand that earwax is not bad for  ears. So, it is a bad idea to try to pull it out. Cleaning it can puncture ear drum or harm the tiny ear bones. Moreover, cotton swabs or buds push your wax further inside the ear which can either clog your ear or cause pain. Cotton swabs were not made for ear use. They were invented to clean nose of infants and babies. So avoid using them to clean your ears.sniS
