Cotton swabs caused life-threatening infection in woman’s skull


  • Isn’t this anatomically impossible?? Sure, this lady could stir up an infection with repeated scrubbing by the q-tip, but these fibers can’t get to the middle/inner ear, much less the adjacent skull bone. The tympanic membrane seals off the auditory canal. Did she rupture it?
    OK..I won’t use my q-tips much, but don’t spread science fiction..Bud
