Cleaned my ears with earwax removal drops and a water-squirting bulb. Earwax gone, but immediately had a sore throat a minor headache. Related?
Most likely yes.: The nerve that supplies sensation (pain, pressure etc) to your eardrum, the glossopharyngeal nerve, also supplies sensation to the throat. If the eardrum is irritated, this nerve sends pain signals to your brain which can interpret them as coming from any branch of that nerve. This is called "referred pain." These pain signals can also cause a headache which I think I too am getting right now! ...Read more

Wall scratch: Ear wax removal has been simplified over the past decades with the introduction of softer plastic curettes (rather than metal loops). Even with this change, the wiggly infant is prone to scratches in the wall during the process, the wax is only made in the outer half of the canal, so the dr seldom needs to go deep unless q tips have pushed the wax deeper. The scratches heal quickly without problems. ...Read more
Impaction possible: You may be impacting wax against your eardrum by using the swab too deeply. This is why cotton swab use is Not Advised for ear wax removal. Have your PCM or an Urgent Care center check your ears to make sure there is no wax impaction, ear drum injury, or ear canal injury from your swab use.

Cleaned ear last night. Caughed and had slight pain. Cleaned ear tonight with qtip to find dry blood. Should I worry? No other symptoms & hearing OK
Probably not: First: don't clean the inside of your ear canal with a Q-tip! They should only be used to clean the outer/visible part of your ear itself. Putting a Q-tip inside the ear canal can force wax and dirt/debris deeper into the canal and can lead to impaction (a plug) of the ear canal wax (cerumen). Also, the Q-tip can injure the wall of the canal and can cause some minor bleeding like you had. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

You Bet, Fairly Easy: Best: simply work shampoo into ear canals, with little finger tip, each time you shampoo your hair. Helps to pull pina back with opposite hand behind head while working in the soap. The wax will be softened by the shampoo ; work out. The usual medical tool for mechanical wax removal is 3 mm od buck ear curette, but not good if cannot see ; don't know anatomy. Q-tip too big, pushes wax further in. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
