How To Keep Your Ears Dry

Ears should be kept clear and dry to keep them healthy. No shower/bath water, soap or shampoo should enter the ear as this can lead to a blockage and/or infection.

To prevent water entering ears

  • Wear a shower cap
  • Use ear plugs
  • Use ‘BluTack’
    • make a ‘coin’ shape to seal the opening of the ear canal
    • do not make a sausage shape, it can get stuck inside

To dry your ears

  • flap air in; with your hand, a piece of cardboard/plastic or use a hairdryer

Do not insert anything into your canal to dry it!
