Tips for Taking Care of Your Hearing


Hearing loss is a common occurrence with research predicting that by 2050 nearly one in ten people will have hearing loss. But there is still hope because it can be prevented; these simple tips may help you avoid hearing damage and go on to live a full and melodious life.

  • Too much loud noise can be harmful, with the risk depending on two factors, how loud and for how long. If you experience ringing in your ears or dull hearing after listening to loud music, then you may be causing damage to your ears and it would be best to turn the volume down.
  • Have your hearing tested regularly to avoid any unexpected changes such as ear infections.
  • Turn it down, whether that be your personal music device, the radio or tv.
  • Avoid inserting fingers or any objects such as towels or cotton wool in your ear as they can push wax further down the canal.
  • If you know you are going to be surrounded by loud noises such as construction work, then make sure you wear earplugs to lessen the impact.
  • Avoid swimming in dirty water as bacteria can arise and an infection can occur.
  • A confined space such as a car can be negatively damaging to your hearing if you are constantly listening to loud music, its best to reduce the level of noise to avoid any later implications.
