I was at the doctor today, and first he took a "lookingdevice" with a plastic protection cover to look down my ear. He poked it quite far down and wondered if it hurt when he did so..It sure did!
Then suddenly he said, I'm gonna clean out some wax. He then proceeded to take 3 q-tips in a row and put them down my ear, and the third one came out with blood on it. I was a bit shocked....does this sound like common practice? He actually admitted that he had caused the ear to bleed, but acted as if it didn't matter.
