Why is it dangerous to clean your ears using Q-tips?

The earwax is forming in a certain place in your ear. Using Q-tips will only push it more in the inside of your ear, a place where it definitely should not be. Naturally, this action will cause even more troubles.

For instance, sometimes, accidentally, you could make a hole in your eardrum. This is one of the main reasons for which doctors do not recommend this method. They even say that the ear should be cleaned about 3 times a month. Clean the earwax only after you have showered and make sure to place your finger at the end of the cotton of the Q-tip so that the earwax would not go further in.

An alternative method to Q-tips

In order to apply this method, you will need the following ingredients:

  • Olive / baby oil
  • An eyedropper
  • Hydrogen peroxide

Put the oil into the eyedropper and then pour 3 drops into each ear. Make sure to massage the cartilage of the ear that covers it. Put a piece of cotton ball inside the ear and then go to sleep. Also, take the precaution measures to avoid coating your pillowcase in oil.

The next morning, take a shower. Put some hydrogen peroxide on your hands and rub your ear with it. The earwax will be softened and it will come out, leaving your ears clean and making you feel more comfortable.

It’s really important to maintain the cleanness of your ears and this seems to be a method that will not harm you in any way. So, replace those Q-tips and choose this method that is not only less expensive but also more efficient and completely harmless.

If you have children, you know how hard it is to make them stay still while cleaning their ears. However, applying this method will ease up your job. The possibility of accidentally harming them will drop considerably and their ears will be clean and safe, at the same time.

Doctors are pro using oil and hydrogen peroxide to clean the ears. If you have an ear infection, the doctor is most likely going to recommend mixing hydrogen peroxide with a bit of water and some alcohol. Not only that this solution is going to relieve the symptoms that appear with an infection, but it will also address the problem. So, instead of jumping and going to the pharmacy, it should be better to take a look over what nature has to offer. This way, you will get to solve the problem and you will also stay clear of side effects.
