Dr. J: Wax, Fungus, FB and SOM… Ear Stuff!

Hi Everyone –

The music is nice. It’s not The Who but it will do. I’d bet Pete could put some kick **ZIT** lyrics to it with his screaming guitar.

At about 6:15 you might want to look away… I won’t spoil the surprise.

At 6:56, it’s like they have the suction on slow motion… very interesting.

YT Commentary:

“You will find in this video common conditions affecting the ear and their treatment. The problems occur throughout the world and are not only seen in India. This video describes the various instruments used in a delicate way so as not to injure the structures in the ear…”

Thank you, Dr. J., for yet another amazing video. What a collection! ~ Your fans at PTZ

  • My favourite part of the video was the first part, with the big crusty wax and fungus- when that big crust FINALLY got pulled out at 3:03, well, I felt like I needed a cigarette!

    Thanks for finding another great video!

  • Awesome vid…

    Multiple case in one vid…I like that 🙂

    The good Dr.J has been busy lately…(editing!!!)
    Can someone explain to me the last case tho?Cuz I dont understand it!
    I know that he did put some kind of “plastic plug with a hole” in the eardrum,but I’m not sure why?To evacuate some fluid maybe???

    Anyway,that was some great stuff!
    Excellent post @Baba_O_Reilly ,tnx a lot 😉

      • @plush and @NMGAPAOH in layman’s terms a gromet is a small tube inserted into the inner ear to prevent the ear closing over with pus when infected. The tube allows the continued drainage of the infection and gives the ear a chance to heal.

        Small children who start getting ear infections often have them almost constantly because the ears are so tiny, they close over with pus and are unable to dry out and just when you think they are getting better, it starts up again.

        My son had 11 ear infections in 12 months when he was a baby. He had gromets put in and has never had an ear infection since and he is a teenager who surfs every day.

        Oh and the gromets are only needed to allow the ears to repair and get healthy again. they are usually removed after about 18 months to 2 years if they are still in the ears but as the child grown they are often squeezed out of the ear c**ZIT** naturally.

    • A tympanostomy tube (also known as a grommet, ear tube, pressure equalization tube, PE tube or myringotomy tube) is a small tube inserted into the eardrum in order to keep the middle ear aerated for a prolonged period of time, and to prevent the ac**ZIT**ulation of fluid in the middle ear. The operation to insert the tube involves a myringotomy and is performed under local or general anesthesia. The tube itself is made in a variety of designs. The most commonly used type is shaped like a grommet. When it is necessary to keep the middle ear ventilated for a very long period, a “T”-shaped tube may be used, as these “T-tubes” can stay in place for 2-4 years. Materials used to construct the tube are most often plastics such as silicone or Teflon. Stainless steel tubes exist, but are no longer in frequent use.

      Although myringotomy with tube insertion can be performed under local anesthesia during a regular doctor’s appointment in co-operative adults, patients requiring tube insertion are very often young children. Since damage to the ear is possible unless the patient stays quite still while being manipulated, any patient who may have difficulty lying still during the procedure undergoes myringotomy and tube insertion under general anesthesia.

      The insertion of tympanostomy tubes is one of the most common surgical procedures performed on children. In the USA, it is the most common reason for a child to undergo a general anesthetic.[1]

      Tympanostomy tubes generally remain in the eardrum for 6 months to 2 years, with T-tubes lasting up to 4 years. They generally spontaneously fall out of the eardrum as the skin of the eardrum slowly migrates out towards the ear c**ZIT** wall over time. The eardrum usually closes without a residual hole at the tube site but in a small number of cases a perforation can persist. Wikipedia

  • What was the suprise at 6:15? I didn’t see anything that was suprising or any different. I looked several times. Will someone let me know what I missed.

  • To all viewers, I followed up on @princesspustule and I am not able to see anything at 6:15 that is cause for alarm, so with that being said, I humbly apologize for my gaff and wonder what I was seeing in the video that caused me to include that disclaimer.

  • Thanks Baba, that was a great vid. I really do love ear wax and pretty much anything Dr J puts out.

    That ear drum covered in fungus was quite beautiful until it started to get s**ZIT**ed and you could see all the black goo underneath. To start with it reminded me of a field of wild flowers.

    There’s a business idea for someone who is unemployed, turn our weird little obsession into art. Take still shots, frame them and sell them!

  • OMG!! That was spectacular! Although, I must say I was sitting in pins and needles for 6:15, but , for some reason, the video didn’t show the time on my screen, so I was just waiting for something really gross. OH, well, no harm…. I do wonder if anyone knows what all of the small white (or, actually, colorless) **ZIT**ps all around the outside of the ear c**ZIT** are in SOME videos? I’ve often wondered but never asked. I hope I’m not the only one who notices them. Again,I thought that was great!! Thank you, “Baba_O”!!!

  • The call it FUNgus because it’s fun.

    Thank you, Dr. J. But…

    Did anyone provide shelter and humanitarian aid to the little fungi that got evicted or displaced in the process?

  • The fungus (green one like pollen) reminds me of the trees in “Horton Hears the Whos” Dr. Seuss cartoon version. The first two didn’t want to come out – I was saying, use a s**ZIT**er and break that bad boy up. The last one, just like wax, slid right out in one icky tar like black/brown/yellow and green ball. The corn came out of a grown woman’s ear – that was a dare that went horribly wrong 😉

  • Brilliant! I have a 6 year old and a 4 year old. The six year old has ears where the wax runs outward toward the edges, I just wash them in the bath. My 4 year old, however, has ear wax that retreats back into his ear c**ZIT**. The ped told me at our last visit not to use q-tips on him because the wax was so impacted, and I shocked her when I said I never have. His ears are just contrary.

    • Well, then @Thomas Banks ~ welcome out of the vastly over crowded Lurker Closet!!! Hope you stick around for a long, long time!!! Keep commenting, maybe submit a few videos – and you will be a “CPop” (Certified Popologist) in no time at all.

  • I am now obsessed with ear wax and otomycosis videos. These are fabulous ailments of others that bring me endless joy. I could watch them all day…Dr. J is a rockstar. I also like his videos where he pulls fungal **ZIT** out of people’s nose c**ZIT**s. Awesome…….just awesome.

  • Unbelievable amount of fungus present in that ear. Would love to know which organism grew out from the cultures & what antifungal treatment was given afterwards.

  • Oh my heavenly stars, b-man!!! This came out right before I joined… wow! I am constantly amazed at Dr. J.’s camera-work, which makes me feel like I am performing the procedures alongside the good Doctor.
