We all use these cotton buds to clean our ears from dirt and wax, but the thing is that these cotton buds are doing more harm than good. Sometimes when we use these cotton buds, it can cause some serious problems and it can lead to inflammation or obstruction.
This is why some people use other cleaning methods, which can be extremely dangerous sometimes. The famous, Dr. David Gill, an American pediatrician, says that we shouldn’t remove the wax from the ears by force. Dr. David says that we should use more efficient methods instead.
He says: “You probably already have all the ingredients in our homes. If you have problems with earwax buildup, then it’s extremely important for you to soften it with some oil. then, you need to soak a piece of cotton in some oil and then gently place it in the ear, without pushing. Then, you need to start shaking your head so that the earwax starts moving towards the outer canal, just like when you try to remove the water from your ear after swimming. After 2 to 3 minutes, put a few drops of oil in your ear.”
Dr. David says that if this method doesn’t work for you, then you should mix equal amounts of vinegar and medicinal alcohol and then wash your ears with this mixture. We really hope you find this article helpful and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family. Thank You.
