TORONTO —
\"Oh, my God, you can plant potatoes in your ears --
Wash it again!
\"It\'s an old saying, but some parents will definitely warn their children in the shower, repeating what they heard from their parents when they were young.
Many adults still hold on to the idea that the only clean ear is the one without wax.
But the doctor says Wax has nothing to do with poor hygiene, just a way for the body to protect the subtle work inside the ear and protect the precious hearing.
\"The first thing that everyone should recognize is that it\'s not dirt, and it\'s not something that has to be removed,\" said Dr.
Ronald Fenton, ENT doctor (
Ear, nose, throat specialist)at St.
Michael Hospital in Toronto
\"A lot of people think that their personal hygiene is not so perfect if they don\'t remove the wax,\" he said . \".
\"This is the first thing they have to be deprived.
Ear wax, medically referred to as cerumen, is produced by falling-
Dead skin and sticky substances secreted from the third part of the ear tube.
\"Basically, it\'s a protective barrier,\" said Fenton, preventing dirt, microbes, insects and water from entering the middle or inner chamber of the ear.
Ear wax type of a person-wet or dry —
It seems to be determined by genes: Caucasian and Africans usually have wet wax, ranging from golden yellow to dark brown, while Asians and Aborigines are more likely to have dry wax, it is gray in color and tends to be more blurry.
The doctor explained that no matter what type a person has, it has some important functions.
Charles Betty is an ENT expert at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
\"This may be a lubricant for the skin --it keeps (the ears)
Because it\'s too dry, the skin is itchy.
\"It can also prevent fungus and bacterial infection in the ear canal,\" he said . \".
Still, most people seem determined to remove wax from their ears --
Doctors say the use of a variety of tools, from cotton swabs to gadgets that better achieve the intended purpose.
Beatty said: \"There is an old saying: Don\'t put something bigger or smaller than your elbow in your ear . \" He listed hairpins and car keys in the equipment used by some people
Even cotton swabs that seem to be designed for the job, he says, tend to \"push a considerable amount of wax deeper and deeper into the ear canal\" in the end \".
\"We see more problems from the excesses.
Individuals, even occasionally healthy, actively or excessively trying to clean the wax
The care providers we see from the accumulation of wax.
\"While many people may have managed to clean up the wax on their ears, there are also some who are not so lucky,\" said Fenton.
\"People often get into trouble when trying to get rid of it. . .
They have a Q.
Their ears were pointed, and someone pushed their elbows lightly, and suddenly they caused serious damage to their middle ears.
\"Doctors in Toronto receive two or three cases every year. the patient accidentally punctured an eardrum or pushed three vibrating listening bones. the position is wrong.
Even through surgery, these injuries cannot always be resolved and may result in permanent hearing loss.
\"This is the worst damage you can afford yourself.
\"Caused,\" said Fenton.
Beatty also saw his share in patients who were looking for wax removal to compromise the internal work of the ear.
\"We have seen a fracture of the middle ear due to excessive stress or accidental injury
\"Tip or another rigid instrument in the ear,\" he said . \".
While people are often encouraged to clean the outer ear with warm, damp face cloths, sometimes too much wax forms a blockage on the ear canal that can cause pain in the ear, fullness, tinnitus and hearing loss.
\"For most patients, proper wax is a good thing,\" Beatty said . \".
\"Too much wax or impact wax, anything that blocks the ear canal can be a problem.
\"Sometimes, when it is really dry and hard, it is like a small stone in the ear.
It may be uncomfortable or painful.
So we have to remove the wax and take it out.
\"Using an ear mirror, an instrument that illuminates and magnifies the inner ear, doctors can remove wax plugs using a small curved instrument called a spoon, suction device, or rubber --
Bulb syringe full of warm water.
Prior to the visit, patients are usually advised to soften the wax for three or four days by dropping a few drops of baby oil, mineral oil, and entering the blocked ear root canal with glycerin or hydrogen peroxide.
Fenton recommends dropping in before going to bed and stuffing some cotton wool in the ear to stop the liquid from flowing out.
Both he and Betty suggested not to \"ear candle\", an alternative medical practice that is considered to be able to treat multiple diseases, including removing excessive wax.
The ear candle is a narrow hollow cone that has been soaked in beeswax or paraffin wax and is allowed to harden.
The cone is inserted into the human ear and lit on the top, allowing for a few minutes of burning.
The heated cone is said to experience softening and stretching wax.
But research has shown that there is no medical benefit and potential danger to ear candle, Health Canada and health USAS.
The Food and Drug Administration has warned consumers to avoid such practices.
\"There is no scientific data to support this as an effective mechanism to remove wax from the ear,\" Beatty said . \".
\"There are already ears --drum and ear-
Trying to insert this into the ear can hurt the canal.
Someone is trying to ignite hair and facial burns (the cone)
Let it tilt properly
At last, their hair caught fire.
\"After all, this is just earwax --
Most people really shouldn\'t care about things, says Fenton.
\"There may be no great magic.
But don\'t move your ears when you have questions.
