Hello Pearls,

Thank you for the question.

Need to be clarified, in what way do you clean your ears?

The cells in the ear canal normally produce cerumen (earwax) whose function is to maintain ear moisture while preventing the entry of harmful foreign particles into the deeper ear. So, in fact this cerumen should not be cleaned, except if it accumulates, causes hearing loss, or also causes symptoms of inflammation.

Excessive pruning to the ear, especially with a cotton bud or a lighter (as many ordinary people do), actually risks causing the cerumen to be pushed inward until finally piling up. Not only that, if you dig your ear too hard, then your ear canal can be injured, inflamed, even the eardrum can be torn if it is scraped too deep. This condition can make your ears feel painful, swollen, excessive secretions, impaired hearing, and this will obviously really bother you.

The good thing is that you no longer pry into your ears. To keep the ear clean, prevent it enough so that no water or foreign substances enter it. Do not forget, check your ear condition regularly to the doctor or ENT doctor every 6 months so that if there is excess dirt can be done further treatment, for example by extracting cerumen, aspirated, or given special drugs.

Hope this helps ...
