When my husband cleans his ears with a Q-tip, he gags. I don't mean he is grossed out by earwax, I mean he actually somehow triggers his gag reflex... through his ear. I know the ear/nose/throat are connected but I have never heard of anyone else that happens to.

I've done it before, but not usually. My kids sometimes gag when unclean theirs.

That might be closer to what he does.

My son has tubes so he has to wear ear plugs to take a bath and he always coughs when I put totem in or when his ears get checked
