I'm 39 years old and its been few weeks now that something is moving inside my deaf left ear. Can you tell me what this is?


The sensation of something moving in your ear could be caused by a number of reasons. The fact that you can relieve the sensation by using a cotton bud to scratch it might indicate a small lesion in the tissue of your ear canal. We recommend that you visit your GP who can examine your ear and prescribe the appropriate treatment.

Remember the old adage - never put anything in your ear smaller than your elbow! (We don’t advise using cotton buds in the ear).

I hope this helped, kind regards,
