You know where You are? You're in the jungle baby!!! You're gonna die!!!
and public service warning: Pre-primal, q-tip days, I came down with an ear infection. The screaming horrible crying over dinner until my husband takes me to the ER really is this what 2-3 year old children suffer from how do they survive--
type of ear infection. Doctor looked in my ear, saw infection, said, "You use q-tips, don't you?"
follow-up doctor in NY, for antibiotics, heard the diagnosis and said flatly, "You used q-tips."
there's a reason q-tips say not to put in your ear. The skin in your ear is so delicate that the q-tip can scratch it, leading to hellish infection.
I almost posted this exact same topic the other day, but thought I was crazy!! It's totally gone. I kind of miss it. I would almost get that involuntary leg kickin' action like a dog when I would dig in there with a Q-Tip!!
Lack of Omega 6...Hmmm?
I don't have any ear wax in one of my ears, and my ear itches really bad inside the canal. It drives me crazy!
I noticed this a couple of days ago. Less wax and much lighter colour. I've been Primal since Jan 1.

I noticed this in myself, and more dramatically in my 4-year-old. She had always had really thick, brown earwax until we went Primal. Lately we've let her eat school lunches to test and see if a rash she's developed is related to wheat, and sure enough, the thick brown earwax is back. I wish there were some scientific explanation for this!
I was told you should fill your ears with warm baby oil and soak them each morning, but that water will work. So I just make sure I fill them in the shower every morning.
No difference here.
Asians like me get my earwax picked out by that special wax removing instrument by parents annually, sometimes more often. Anyway, I went back home recently and had it done by my mom. She took out some really large crap from my ears.
