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!
