Caution! Do you also use Ear Birds? Know this, avoid serious illness

Prolonged use of wireless earbuds can cause ear infections or hearing problems. Let's find out what are the dangers associated with earbuds.

It has become a new trend to put wireless earbuds in your ears and use them for long periods of time to listen to music. In fact, the 3.5mm headphone jack is no longer available in many new smartphones, in which case Bluetooth wearables are a good option. However, their prolonged use and neglect can lead to ear infections. Let us tell you what are the risks associated with using earbuds for long periods of time and how to avoid them.

Risks due to prolonged use of earbuds

If you use the earbuds for a long time, you may face some problems.

Bacteria and fungi : Bacteria and fungi can accumulate in the earbuds, which can reach the ear and cause infection.

Ear wax: Prolonged wearing of earbuds can cause ear wax to build up, which can lead to hearing problems and infections.

Skin irritation : Some people may experience skin irritation and allergies due to continuous use of earbuds, which can cause itching, redness and swelling of the ears.

Be alert if you have pain, swelling or itching in your ear or discharge from the ear. Apart from this, even if you are hard of hearing, you need to be careful about using earbuds.

This way you can keep yourself safe from infection

  • If you want to protect yourself from the risk of such infection, there are a few things to keep in mind. You can see this below.
  • Earbuds must be cleaned according to the instructions provided by the manufacturer. Dirty earbuds can be a major cause of such infections.

Also, after swimming or running, dry the ears thoroughly and only then use the earbuds. If you use the earbuds when there is moisture in the ear, the risk of infection increases.

  • Avoid using earbuds for long periods of time if possible.
  • If you experience any problems, stop using the earbuds or replace them.

If you want, you can use more than one earbud. The method of storing them also needs to be better. If the earbuds are not going to be used for a long time, clean them thoroughly.
