Dangers of using cotton swabs:
When you are using cotton swabs you are pushing the earwax deeper into the ears.
Earwax cleans your ear canal, but when you are using cotton swabs, they take the bacteria and fungus to the inner parts of the ear, which can lead to serious infections and pain.
If you really need to clean your ears here are some helpful tips:
• Don’t use the cotton swab deeper in the ear because you will push the earwax to the bottom and could plug the ear. This could cause hearing problems and dizziness.
• For the children, there are swabs specially designed for preventing intrusion into the ear canal.
One option to clean the earwax from your ears is to make a mix of 1 part each of rubbing alcohol, white vinegar and tap water and to add a few drops in your ear.
Another option is to put a few drops of olive oil in your ear. It will soften the earwax and make it easier to come out.
