Taking care of ears
Do not insert stuff in the ears
A large group of people makes this mistake trying to remove wax from the ears. One thing you need to know is that wax is purposely in the ear. It is there to trap any dust, insects or any foreign particles making way in the ear. The excess wax will seem near the ears opening, and that is what should be cleaned. Avoiding using ear buds, biro pen pipes, matchsticks and any other item used to scoop ear wax out. You are risking damaging the ear drum as well as foreign stuff entering your ear.
Loud music or noise
This is number one ears destroyer. Some people are always on earphones on loud music. You are damaging your hearing ability. If you must use the earphones, please use the correct volume. You will find others sleeping with earphones on. This is risky and damaging to your ears. Avoid staying in places with deafening music and teach your children about the importance of soft music.
See the ear doctor
A large population never visit the audiologist unless they have hearing issues. Make it your habit to see the doctor for ears checkup. You never know, they might see something unusual in your ears or that of your baby. Early medication makes the situation easy to heal.
