Ears are very sensitive organ and proper care has to be taken. The wax in the ear is actually considered to be beneficial, it protects from infection. We can use good branded cotton buds to clean the dirt. There is no need to clean it everyday. If you feel there is dirt accumulated, and if you feel a sense of ear blockage, you can then clean it using the buds. Other than branded cotton buds, no other stuffs should be used for cleaning. Few drops of Coconut oil or Olive oil can be put, if the wax in the ear is too dry. In the process of cleaning, the bud should not be penetrated deep inside the ear. Utmost care should be taken, not to hurt the inner cannal and ear drum. After bath, one should clean and dry the external ear by a clean towel. For childrens, baby ear buds can be used. Consult a doctor, and take his guidance, when dealing with toddlers ear.
