Q. How should one remove a cotton swab stuck in the ear canal?

A.  We strongly recommend you go to your local ENT surgeon who will remove it for you under direct vision, unless of course you can see it protruding through the ear canal, in which case it may be gradually pulled out using a pair of fine tweezers (forceps).
