Simple Ways to Protect Your Ears From Damage

The health of your ears can be easily overlooked. Hearing loss emerges slowly and most of its symptoms are very common and disposable. However, once affected there is no going back from hearing disability. So, it is better that we take proper care of our ears. We should all take preventive measures to keep our ears safe:

Earplugs: It is a very small step that has huge benefits. If you are someone who is constantly exposed to loud noises, use ear-plugs. It will keep your ears safe as well as reduce the chances of you getting a headache from the noise.

Check the Volume: Youth, especially teenagers, like their music loud. Earphones and earbuds are the leading cause for noise-induced hearing loss. Earbuds are especially dangerous, as they fit directly next to the eardrum. If possible, opt for over-the-ear headphones.

No Cotton Buds:  It is always better that you do not use cotton swabs to clean your ears. It is appreciable that you want them clean all the time, but it can damage the eardrums and can lead to hearing impairment. Also your ears have the nature of cleaning themselves. Above all the wax that is present protects the drums from damage. So it is better that you avoid buds.

Ears Also Need Rest: If you are at a club or a concert where the noise is too high to stand, we suggest that you step out to a more peaceful spot for 10-15 minutes. Constantly being in an environment where the noise is too high is not good for your ears.

 Keep Your Ears Dry: So this is when you can use a swab to clean your ears. It could after playing the beach or after a head bath. There are good chances that you might have a lot of water, and if that is not cleaned and is in store for a long time, then that can also damage your ears.

Use Eardrops to clean your Ears: A common symptom of wax build-up is a mild hearing loss, known as conductive deafness, as sounds can’t pass freely through the ear canal because of a blockage. Olive oil is often recommended, and although it’s not as effective, it will soften the wax. You can use eardrops made of sodium bicarbonate to dissolve impacted wax.

Exercise: Little did all of know about the impact that consistent exercise habits can have on our ears. Yes, exercise keeps your body fit. But are you aware of the fact that it can also keep your ears healthy? Yes, you heard it right. Exercises like walking, running and jogging is also improve the health of your ears and protects them from damage.

These measures will help you prevent hearing loss. Always remember that your health is in your own hands. Never forget to take care of yourself.

Do I Need a Hearing Aid? Signs of Hearing Impairment

It is difficult to diagnose loss of hearing at an early stage. According to the statistics, most cases of hearing loss go undiagnosed and untreated until it is too late. As we age, the ability of our ears become weaker. Chronic exposure to loud noises also harms our ears. If you experience any of the symptoms as stated below, we suggest you pay a visit to your doctor, as we are all aware of the saying ‘Prevention is better than cure.’

Some common symptoms of hearing loss are:

Asking People to Repeat Themselves: If you cannot hear what the other person is saying and find yourself asking the other person to repeat often, it might be because your hearing ability has been affected.

Problem in Socializing: If you are having problems in socialising for the reasons that you find people mumbling, cannot make sense of what they are saying, asking them to repeat themselves often and this is making you withdraw from social events and gatherings, you might be suffering from hearing loss.

Turning up the TV: If you are having trouble hearing the sound and can only hear it when you turn up the volume of the TV really high, then you most probably are suffering from hearing loss.

Phone Calls: Hearing loss can compromise your ability to catch what the other person is saying and this would lead you to ignore phone calls which only trouble you further.

So, if these symptoms manifest themselves, it is probably time for you to visit the doctor. However, these are the early symptoms. More advanced symptoms which require immediate medical attention include:

One-Sided: If you feel that you can hear clearly from only one of your ears, then you need immediate medical attention.

Family History: If you have a history of hearing disability in your family and feel that you are experiencing trouble in hearing, then you should visit your doctor.

Ringing Sensation in Your Ears: If you have a constant ringing sensation in your ears, it might be because either age or chronic exposure to loud noise or some other factor has caused you to develop Tinnitus. Most people ignore this, regarding it as a minor inconvenience. However, we suggest you get it checked as soon as possible.

Health Conditions: Several health conditions and their medications have adverse effects on your hearing. So, if you have a heart condition, diabetes or thyroid problems or you take ototoxic drugs, you are more prone to suffer hearing loss.

The above listed are some of the factors that prove that there are chances that you might suffer hearing impairment in the near or the distant future. However, there are a lot of remedial measures that can be taken to prevent further damage. Make sure that you do not expose yourself to situations that do not affect your eardrums further. As long as you can do that, your ears are safe. If you can see these symptoms coming down, then you need not have to wear a hearing aid.
