Ear hygiene

Good ear hygiene helps avoid the accumulation of earwax and therefore the formation of ear plugs. However, we do not always choose the right ear cleansing routines: in spite of their widespread use, cotton swabs or Q-tips entail certain health risks as they pack earwax deep into the ear canal.  If used too deep, they can also perforate the tympanic membrane.

As a general rule, you should avoid inserting objects into your ears in order to avoid all risk of obstruction or perforation.

Daily washing the auricle of the outer ear with water and drying it with a clean towel helps clean the ear without upsetting its functioning.
