Going swimming and coming back with ears filled with water is irritating but not disgusting. Disgusting is to have ears that are home to wax. If this is how you feel, read the story until the last to find yourself in the wrong corner.
This sense organ needs a delicate care, and there is a lot to ears that we are not aware of. Go ahead and find out what.
Many are unaware, and many are not ready to listen to their doctors who urge them not to use cotton swabs.
The cotton swabs can, in fact, push a greater part of wax deep inside your ear.
Ear wax performs a very important function of keeping the dirt particles away from the ear drum.
Ears clean themselves by cycling wax and pushing the unwanted wax towards outer canal naturally. So all we need to clean is that outer area.
Wax is produced in the outer canal. So, the only reason behind blockage can be a frequent use of cotton swab.
The above remedy is the easiest as well as the cheapest way to clean ears.
Baby/mineral oil can also be safely used for the cleaning purpose. The only thing you should keep in mind is to check if you are allergic to any of the ingredients. You can use this by dipping cotton in the oil and applying on your hands an hour before the application in ears.
Yet another way of cleansing comes by the usage of hydrogen peroxide.
You will need a doctor to perform the irrigation by the method of syringing.
If the above-mentioned methods are not working, you should consider taking proper medical care.
