    I've had it done a few times when I was younger and it's not damaging at all, not getting the wax flushed out can actually be quite harmful to your hearing so still go for the ear cleaning. It's not painful, and you're done in a snap! And it's a perfectly harmless procedure

    crappy internet articles aren't reliable sources . No, it is not harmful ,otherwise, it would not be used medically.
