A boy in south Wales who has been partially deaf for nine years was suddenly cured when a cotton wool bud popped out of his ear. Jerome, now 11, was suddenly able to hear clearly again as he played with friends.Â
Jerome was diagnosed as deaf in his right ear when he wasÂ two years old.Â He said he heard a popping sound, then found the tip of a cotton wool bud in his ear.
His parents believeÂ he must have put the Cotton bud in his ear as aÂ two year oldÂ and the centimetre-long cotton tip must of become detached from the Â plastic stick.
