How to avoid EAR infection through Rainy season
Many people are complaining of fungal and bacterial ear infections, and the number has seen an uptrend during the rainy season. To avoid ear infections, keep your ears clean and manage red flags like reduced hearing, pain, and watery discharge, say experts. Rainy season is pleasing, but it also brings a plethora of health problems with it. Ear infections are a common occurrence in rainy season. They can impact any part of the ear that is the inner, middle, or even the external ear. During rainy season, rain and contaminated water entering the ear invites fungal infections.
Likewise, increased humidity is the perfect condition for bacteria and fungus to grow. Moreover, debris in the ear and minor bruises from earbuds can also raise your risk of ear infections. Cotton buds, sticks may contain fungus, and once you put it in your ear, it starts growing there.
