And according to Dr Li, an ear specialist, from Zhuhai Second People's Hospital, it would take at least two months for the girl's hearing to return to normal.

"The inner ear is connected to the mouth through a tube, whose chief function is to equalize the pressure between the two," he explained.

He added: "In this case, the kiss reduced the pressure in the mouth, pulled the eardrum out and caused the breakdown of the ear."

Although, doctors concede that kissing is normally very safe, they have advised people to proceed with caution.
