In-Ear Earphones Can Push Earwax Inside The Ear Canal, Impacting It
It Can Result In Discomfort, Ear Blockage, Hearing Loss, And Infection
In-ear earphones are one of the causes of potential hearing loss because sound feels more amplified. However, another issue is the impacted earwax. Earwax is a substance produced in the ear canal, which captures foreign objects that can potentially damage the eardrum. There is a natural mechanism that pushes the earwax to the outside, which is cleaned with daily hygiene. In the case of in-ear earphones, these adjust inside the ear canal, pushing inside the earwax, and impacting it against the eardrum. This will result in discomfort, blockage, hearing loss, and infection. Specialists strongly advise against cleaning the earwax using cotton buds or other objects and recommend seeking professional advice for safe removal. Additional details click here.
