Whenever you feel your ears are dirty or slightly blocked, do you pick up a cotton swab and start digging into them to clean them? It is okay if you do because most people do the same and have been taught to do it since childhood. However, these innocent looking cotton swabs may actually be more dangerous than they let on.

According to a report published in the BMJ, a man in the UK has sworn to never touch an earbud again when he developed a life-threatening infection due to it. The publication reports that the tip of the cotton swab got stuck in the man's ear while cleaning it, something he did not even realise and led to the development of an infection in his skull.

The 31-year-old man was rushed to the hospital emergency room when he had a seizure and collapsed. In ten days that finally led to the seizure, the man had complained of pain in his left ear and a discharge that was coming out of it. He also experienced severe headaches, vomits, and even started to forget people's names.
