Audiologist pulled out “Chicken Nugget” earwax on TikTok

  • Audiologist Dr Elly Pourasef posted a really satisfying earwax removal video on TikTok.
  • She uses an Earigator device to remove a gigantic “chicken nugget” of earwax from her patient’s ear – and the second ear is even more satisfying than the first.
  • Fans in the comments section couldn’t forget the patient’s results. But Dr Elly warned them not to try to remove earwax at home.

    Audiologist Dr. Elly Pourasef is the queen of satisfying earwax removal videos – and all the evidence is on her TikTok account. In a recent video, users watched her spellbound as she squirted a whole “chicken nugget” of earwax from her patient’s ear.

    Obviously, this is a satisfying video, as it has over 30 million views (yes, you read that right). But, if you’re new to TikTok earwax removal, let’s break it down.

    The video shows Dr. Elly doing what she does best at the Memorial Hearing Audiology And Hearing Aid Clinic in Houston, Texas. First, she prepares her patient by draping a towel over her shoulder and giving her a plastic bowl to hold under her ear (you know, to catch all the wax).

    Next, Dr. Elly uses a tool called an Earigator to rinse his ears using a continuous stream of water. It doesn’t take long before the wax clumps start to fall off. And, as she continues, a huge lump pops out before the same thing happens with the other ear.

    The comments section was overflowing, “Jesus just pulled out a chicken nugget,” one user asked, while someone else wrote, “My ears probably aren’t that bad, but I would get behind the wheel just to have them cleaned by you😂 “(actually, ditto). Dr Elly replied, “Let’s do dooooittttt!

    The video is really very satisfying, but why go to a professional to remove earwax in the first place?

    Earwax is part of your body’s defense system, according to the Mayo Clinic. It keeps your ear canals clean and helps protect your eardrums by trapping dirt and preventing the growth of harmful bacteria. While earwax is usually easy to clean, sometimes it builds up too much, that’s when it’s time to call a pro.

    Unfortunately, there’s really no way to know if you have too much earwax without seeing a doctor or audiologist like Dr. Elly, according to the Mayo Clinic. Some signs to look out for include earaches and hearing problems (although these symptoms can also indicate other, more serious medical problems).

    And, while it can be tempting to try and remove earwax at home on your own, sticking things in your ear canals, like cotton swabs, is not a good idea. Even Dr Elly agreed: When a user commented, “Does anyone else use a bobby pin to clean their ears?

    These methods can actually push earwax deeper instead of removing it, according to the Mayo Clinic. And you could cause a blockage in the process. Instead, you can try soaking a cotton ball in water, hydrogen peroxide, or saline and dripping a bit of it into your ear.

    Tilt your head down so your ear is pointing upwards and let the liquid sit for about a minute. Then tilt your head the other way and the wax should come out, according to Harvard Medical School.

    So leave earwax removal to the pros, but watch as many TikToks as you want. I won’t say it!
