6 Ways to Keep Your Ears Healthy

Vikrant Singh

1. Protect from Loud Noises 

Limit exposure to loud sounds by using earplugs or earmuffs in noisy environments.

2. Clean Ears Properly

Avoid inserting objects like cotton swabs or fingers into your ears, as this can push wax deeper and potentially damage your eardrum.

3. Avoid Excessive Earwax Removal

 Earwax serves as a natural barrier to protect the ear canal. Allow your ears to naturally expel excess wax.

4. Maintain Ear Hygiene

Keep ears dry to prevent infections. Dry them thoroughly after swimming or showering, and avoid using cotton swabs or other objects to clean inside the ear canal.

5. Monitor Ear Health

Pay attention to any changes in your hearing or any discomfort in your ears. If you experience persistent pain, drainage, or hearing loss, seek medical attention promptly.

6. Healthy Lifestyle Habits

Maintain overall health by managing conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure, as they can affect hearing.
