    hello..it is unadvisable to poke anything into your ear. if you are having discomfort like pain,ringing in the ears,giddiness etc associated with cerumen and wax impaction,ear syringing is a good procedure that dislogdes it. This is a small procedure that can be done in an office by a nurse or any trained health professional.So ill advice u consider the option..thanks
