Hey dear friends what is the most common hygiene method for cleaning your ears. We can guess as usual and as we are doing you are using using a cotton swabs. When it comes to ear hygiene, you could be doing more harm than good with your current cleaning regimen. The ears are an extremely sensitive and delicate area, and as such, you should take precautions and do your research before attempting to clean them yourself. If great care is not taken when cleaning your ears, it could result in impaired hearing, infection, and/or painful long-term damage.
When you swab your ears after a shower, you remove cerumen, otherwise known as earwax. Cerumen is a healthy feature of the inside of your ears. It’s protective and antibacterial. It originates near your ear drum and slowly pushes its way out, becoming dry and then simply falling out. This is the normal process of ear maintenance.
What happens when you use cotton swabs?

The cotton swabs can, in fact, push a greater part of wax deep inside your ear.
3 Ear wax is defamed unnecessarily.
Ear wax performs a very important function of keeping the dirt particles away from the ear drum.
4 Best time to clean?
Ears clean themselves by cycling wax and pushing the unwanted wax towards outer canal naturally. So all we need to clean is that outer area. –

Wax is produced in the outer canal. So, the only reason behind blockage can be a frequent use of cotton swab.
