Probably many people don’t pay attention to clean their ears constantly and correctly, to avoid pain and annoying. Most people usually clean their ears when they begin to feel they have “some time” without doing it… Is this your case?

It’s important to understand that cleaning your ears is necessary, as the wax accumulates with every day dirt, dead cells and dust. How should you clean the inside of your ears?

Follow these easy steps:

  • Clean once a week (not recommended more than once a week)
  • Use ear syringe, hydrogen peroxide (3%) and a towel
  • Tilt your head to one side and fill the syringe with peroxide
  • Insert it in the ear (very superficially) and release the liquid.
  • Don’t worry if you feel bubbling inside the ear, as this means that the procedure is working.
  • When finishing the bubbling your inner ear will be clean, you can tilt your head to eject the liquid and use the towel to dry.
  • Repeat the procedure in the other ear

To clean the outer ear, the superficial part, you should only use your usual soap or a cotton swab with water. Don’t forget to clean the back of the lobe.

NOTE: If you have a problem in your ear or feel a sense of deafness, you’d better go with your otolaryngologist, who will explain the best way to clean your ears.
