1) It is important to remember that your ears are self-cleaning. There is no need to use cotton buds to clean your ears.

Earwax is actually a type of sweat. It's produced by glands in your ear canal to help protect your ears from dirt and bacteria.



2) Our ears are vital to our health - and yet, all too often, we don’t take care of them properly. Ear wax is something that builds up naturally in our ears, and which also has a key part to play in keeping our ears healthy.



3) Trying to remove this wax from your ears when it’s simply doing its job can be problematic, especially if you’re using something like cotton buds. In fact, the use of cotton buds can actually do more harm than good when it comes to cleaning your ears.



4) Pushing earwax further in:

Cotton buds can push earwax further into the ear canal, where it can build up and cause problems. This can lead to ear infections, hearing loss, and other complications.


5) Damaging the ear canal:

 The pointed tip of a cotton bud can damage the delicate skin of the ear canal. This can cause pain, bleeding, and infection.



6) Leaving behind cotton fibers:

The cotton fibers on a cotton bud can break off and get stuck in the ear canal. This can also lead to pain, bleeding, and infection.


It is important to remember that your ears are self-cleaning. There is no need to use cotton buds to clean your ears. In fact, using cotton buds can actually do more harm than good. If you are concerned about earwax buildup, talk to your doctor about safe ways to remove it.


Here are some tips for cleaning your ears safely:


- Use a damp washcloth or a cotton ball to wipe the OUTER ear.


- Do not insert anything into the ear canal.


- If you have a lot of earwax buildup, see your doctor for professional removal.
