This actually unfolded over the last week, and am still "enjoying" the results of my actions..
So for the last few years I've regularly had an itch in my ears. Over the past few months it came as far as having an almost daily itch and I had to clean my ears multiple times a week because of the ginormous amount of ear wax my ears were producing.
I had been searching for a long time to find an alternative for cotton swabs as I am aware they're not the best but wasn't able to find any (guess I'm an idiot..)
Last week the itching became so bad I started googling again knowing doctors will not be an option for at least 6 more months in my country due to COVID. And so I found an ear spray that is supposed to help dissolve your ear wax while keeping your ears moisturized. Sounds perfect!
I ordered the spray and as soon as it arrived I started going to town. At first the itch immediately subsided. Then.. It became much - and I mean much! worse. Also, any time I'd move my jaw I'd hear a scratchy noise inside my ear...
Finally fed up I took out a cotton swab and was shocked as I pulled out a huge piece of dead skin from my ear. As in.. I didn't even know the inner ear had that much skin surface.. it's like I'm a badly shedding lizard in my ear. Every day I'm pulling out huge pieces of dead skin from my ears and it doesn't seem to stop anytime soon..
So yeah.. gonna enjoy that for a while.. At least my hearing has improved since using the spray.. No more cotton swabs for me..
Tl;dr: Used cotton swabs for years, itchy ears caused me to try out a spray against ear wax. Turns out my ears were itchy from years and years of dead skin buildup. Now my ears are even more itchy from all the dead skin getting unstuck in my ears.
Edit. To all the people asking me in the comments for the product. Check your local pharmacy, they probably have similar products there and will be able to inform you. Best of luck and healthy ear cleaning to y'all!

I've seen this on a few appeals from animal charities, there appears to be a rising number of animals getting caught in disposable masks. I just tear the loops out before I get rid of mine, it's barely any extra effort but could reduce the risk of harm.
Yeah, sorry, using Q-tips in your ears feels amazing.
I don’t like feeling wax drip out of my ears, nor do I like feeling my ear canals itch from wax.
If I had to pick between using Q-tips, drinking, and smoking/another drug habit, I would pick Q-tips over any vice in the world 10/10.
It feels amazing. Honestly, like at the end of the day it just feels good. It feels good to get every last ounce of wax out my ears and feel my ears tingle with pleasure as I do it.
Health risks and hearing loss/ear damage have never affected me and I’ve been using Q-tips since I was in elementary school.
Yeah, I know the risks. Risks don’t stop people from not using condoms or doing drugs.
Risks aren’t going to stop me from enjoying Q-tips excavating my ears of wax.
