Did you know Cot­ton Buds are actu­al­ly bad for your ears?

Every­one enjoys the sweet feel­ing that comes from stick­ing a cot­ton bud in the ear, twist­ing it around and tak­ing it out. It’s almost orgas­mic. We do it often because the body feels good and wrong­ly assume that “dirt” is being removed from the ears while indulging in this act. This is not true, what actu­al­ly hap­pens is that the Cot­ton Bud picks the top wax pro­duce in the ear, takes it out while also push­ing the rest of the wax fur­ther down the inner­most part of the ears.

Now the risk is that push­ing down ear wax can affect ear drum which could result to deaf­ness. The ear has a self-cleans­ing con­vey­or belt mech­a­nism that auto­mat­i­cal­ly push­es out exces­sive ear wax pre­vent­ing it from build­ing up more than nec­es­sary.

We usu­al­ly don’t notice this because the wax gets expelled in bits while bathing or on the pil­low while sleep­ing.

How­ev­er, there’s a pecu­liar group of peo­ple who have Impact­ed Ear Wax, which requires med­ical atten­tion with get­ting out ear wax. This only hap­pens to about 5 out of every 100 peo­ple.

This con­di­tion may result to dif­fi­cul­ties with hear­ing, itch­ing, ring­ing and oth­er symp­toms.
Some of the caus­es of impact­ed ear­wax are; old age, long term use of cot­ton buds which has made wax accu­mu­late, use of hear­ing aids or it just hap­pens.

Pos­si­ble solu­tion is to try two drops of olive oil in the ears for a few days to soft­en the wax and it will fall off on its own.

Some­times wax prob­lems can be quite unset­tling and noth­ing seems to help.

It is advis­able that if you have tried some drops of olive oil with no suc­cess, see your doc­tor.

DO NOT PUT ANYTHING inside your ears for what­ev­er rea­son at all. IT IS DANGEROUS.

Gen­er­al­ly for every­one, just as men­tioned ear­li­er, the ears deal with wax itself for a vast major­i­ty of peo­ple. You do NOT need to pick your ears or stick any­thing inside it at all.

No cot­ton buds.
No brooms.
No biro cov­ers.
No hair clips.
Noth­ing needs to go inside your ears please.

Olive oil drops is usu­al­ly sold at any phar­ma­cy or chemist around you if you absolute­ly need it, just ask for Ear Wax Drops. Two drops a day for few days should help soft­en the wax and it would nat­u­ral­ly fall off on its own.
