A lot of people are very much in love with the sweet feeling and sensation they get whenever they use cotton buds. Well, I also use to love that feeling until I found out about how dangerous using cotton buds was to my ears. Over the years, there have been so many cases of accidents resulting from the use of cotton buds or cotton swabs.
That beautiful and tickling sensation we love actually has its consequences and disadvantages, according to recent scientific research by experts. In this article, I'm going to be talking about some of the reasons why you should stop using cotton buds to clean your ears. See them below;
Cotton buds drives earwax up into the eardrum.
One thing that most people fail to take note of is the fact that using cotton boards helps to push most of the ear wax and dirt into the eardrum. And this is actually dangerous because it can result in ear damage and inability to hear or hearing loss in the long run. This object known as cotton board can only succeed in bringing out little dirt from your ears, while the other ones are pushed more deeper into the ears. The more you keep using it, the more blockage to your ears.
Pain and infection.
Most people are now addicted to using cotton buds on their ears almost everyday, to the extent that it starts causing their ears lots of pain and discomfort. Ear infections occurs when objects are being used in the ears excessively. Sometimes, boils start forming in the ears. These boils can be itchy and painful and they are as a result of excess cleaning of the ears.
The cotton might fall inside your ears.
Over the years, we've seen several cases whereby cotton buds get stuck inside a person's ear, most especially children. This is very dangerous and could lead to hearing loss if care is not taken. There are some very badly produced cotton buds in the market these days and they easily fall off the stick into the ears while being used.
