  What is basic Ear Care? 

Ears are one of the important sense organs of the body. So, take proper care of them. Have you checked your ears with a doctor if you have any problems?

*Clean your ears with extra care. Clean the outer part of the ear with a mild cloth or tissue.

*Avoid putting any drops, oil,  liquid in the ears without the doctor's consultation.

*Avoid inserting metal objects like pins, keys, pens, or any sharp instruments in your ear. 

*Take Doctor's assistance to remove any foreign objects from the ear. 

*Reduce the risk of ear infections by treating upper respiratory (nose & throat) infections promptly.

*Loud noises harm the ears. When using earphones, keep the volume at a comfortable level. If people around you can hear what you are listening to, the volume is too high. Remove the headphones from time to time to give your ears a rest.

*If you have an earache, hear a ringing like sound or have any discharge, giddiness, vertigo, or nausea, consult the doctor immediately.
