Why can’t I pick my ears with cotton swabs?

Why can’t you use cottonPick your ears? 

      There are cerumen glands in the skin on the cartilage surface of the outer ear canal of humans, which can secrete a light yellow viscous substance called cerumen, commonly known as “earwax” or “ear cicada”, which guards the external auditory canal like a “sentinel” door.Some of this substance becomes flakes after drying with air, and some are like sticky grease.Usually “hidden” in the external auditory canal, it has the function of protecting the skin of the external auditory canal and adhering to foreign substances (such as dust, small flying insects, etc.).As far as ears are concerned, earwax is actually an ear protection umbrella. It has been protecting the ears in obscurity, but you can’t see it~

      The ear canal can be cleaned with liquids such as salt water, mineral oil, and hydrogen oxide.Just pour the liquid into the ear dropper, and then drop a few drops into the ear. On which ear to drop, tilt your head in the opposite direction to allow the cleaning fluid to enter the ear. Keep it for about 4 minutes. Turn sideways, empty the liquid from the ear canal, and dry the ear canal.Then use the same method to clean the other ear.

      Of course, many times cleaning the ear canal is unnecessary. With the self-cleaning function of the ear, many people do not need to clean the ear at all.If there is too much earwax, you can try the above methods. Of course, to be on the safe side, the best way is to go to the hospital and let the surgeon clean it up.
