Too much cleaning can be bad for you. People around the world use a variety of things to clean their ears. Most people tend to use cotton buds or Q-tips, those things are causing your hearing problem. Experts state that when your ear is cleaned, the ecosystem of the ear is altered. Ears are small ecosystems that house a specific set of bacteria. But once the ear is cleaned, the bacterial makeup of the ear is greatly altered. The new ecosystem which has been created as a direct result of the ears being cleaned can lead to partial hearing loss.
A study that was recently conducted on 87 children found that all of them had developed swimmers ear, the syndrome that causes inflammation of the ear. Not only is the syndrome painful but can cause hearing loss. The main cause of the syndrome was due to the use of Q-tips. The syndrome is treatable, but the same cannot be said for frequent adult users, who have made cleaning ears a habit.
Earwax needs to be removed by the use of ear-drops or by a professional doctor or audiologist who knows how to perform ear-irrigation. When you use Q-tips, you’re disturbing the functioning of a well-oiled machine. Q-tips or whatever object you use to clean your ears can result in the earwax being pushed into the ear canal. The excess earwax in the ear canal can cause serious complications.
It should be noted that earwax is like a naturally produced Vaseline. Vaseline is essentially used for moisturizing the skin and allowing it to breathe instead of becoming dry and cracking up. The same can be said about earwax; there is a notion that if you remove all the earwax from the ear, your ear can stop functioning. Earwax is also anti-bacterial in nature, thereby cleaning the ear of dust and microbial activity.
People who have been around explosions will tell you that they at times hear a ringing or at times have zero balance. These are two common syndromes, tinnitus and vertigo. Do you know the second leading cause of tinnitus and vertigo? Cotton buds, yes those tiny sticks with cotton at the end can lead to the same effects as an explosion.
We’d like to conclude this article with one final thought. Earwax is supposed to be discharged naturally. But in most cases people remove earwax, thinking that they are keeping their ears clean. If anything they are causing a wax blockage that can lead to permanent damage to the eardrums.
If you still think you need to keep your ears clean, then visit a doctor. Let the professionals take over.
Most people neglect taking care of their ears; this can over time lead to hearing loss and permanent hearing damage. In this article, we look at some of the significant ways in which we damage our ears on a regular basis.
Have you ever had your parents ask you to clean your ears with a Q-tip or cotton bud; well they might have triggered the downfall of your hearing in the long run. As a kid, you’re always conditioned to use either one to clean your ears, and over the years it starts to become a habit. Experts warn that regular usage of the Q-tip can lead to perforating the eardrum. If the eardrum gets damaged, then you’re in for a lot of pain and reduced hearing.
There are certain medications that are ototoxic in nature. Ototoxic refers to products that can cause hearing loss. The onset of ototoxic effects is always very sudden; the first symptoms that you will encounter are vertigo and tinnitus. Most cases of ototoxic effects are not permanent, and the hearing loss that you encounter recedes once the person stops taking the medication. There are cases where ototoxic medication has led to the permanent loss of hearing.
When people talk about smoking, they talk about heart diseases and lung problems, but smoking can result in the impairment of hearing. Nicotine which is one of the primary components of cigarettes is an ototoxic substance. A recent study revealed that a staggering 70% of smokers were found highly likely to develop hearing loss accompanied by damage to the inner ear. You should start being careful as soon as you start experiencing tinnitus.
As we mentioned earlier, people tend to dig out the earwax from their ears. But this is not a recommended method of cleaning your ears. Experts suggest the use of ear drops that can loosen the wax in the ear; in most cases, the wax should fall off. But if the wax hasn’t come out, then visit your doctor who can them employ ear-irrigation method to clean your ears. The method is much safer than using Q-tips.
Have you ever been in a situation where you’ve seen people walk into oncoming traffic while using their headphones? Well, the occurrence is attributed to hearing loss which was developed as a direct effect of using headphones. The World Health organization pits headphones as the single biggest preventable cause of hearing loss. Experts conclude that music is loud as soon as you start becoming unaware of the environment that you’re surrounded in. They go on to say that if you’re using your headphones at 60% volume, then you should only be using headphones for 60 minutes in a day. While if you’re using your headphones at 100% volume, then the allowed duration of usage is only 5 minutes per day. So the next time you’re blasting music through your headphones, be aware of the consequences of it.
