Ear candling side effects?

Hey everybody,

Wanted to know of there are any side effects of ear candling. I have had people telling me to not even clean ear with  a bud. So am not too sure whether or not candling would be a good idea. What do you think?




Medically, there are no benefits either.

Ear candles are legal in the US. However, they cannot be promoted as a treatment for medical conditions including earwax build-up. Ear candles are not permitted in Canada. In Europe, ear candles are regulated as medical devices.

Ear candling might be UNSAFE. It has been linked to harm including burns from the lighted candle or hot wax. Other possible side effects include blockage of the ear canal with candle wax, temporary hearing loss, external ear infection, and eardrum puncture.
