We can all agree- one of the most annoying things we deal with every day is earwax. Even though it`s purpose is to protect the ears, extracting excess wax from the ears may cause ear infection.
The ear infection can be very painful. But before you go to the store to buy something for pain relief, read here how to deal with this annoying problem using only 2 natural and completely safe ingredients.
You probably have the two ingredients at home, or just go to any nearest store to buy them.
What actually causes the ear infection?
Some of the reasons can be:
- Long periods of exposure to moist
- Abnormal temperature
- Humid places
Swimmers, people who live in humid areas or who`s ears have often contact with water are more likely to suffer from ear infection because of the fungi and bacteria that thrive in moist environment.
So, tilt your head while showering, use earplugs when you go swimming or snorkeling, and if water enters the ear, drain it immediately.
Why does earwax build up immediately after we finish with cleaning the ear? When using a cotton bud for removing the earwax, we actually push most of it deeper in the canal. Some of the possible symptoms of earwax can be:
- Ear pain
- Ringing in the ear
- Reduced hearing
- Feeling that the ears are plugged
Increased number of bacteria and fungi in the ear can cause pain and infection. Consult your doctor for a treatment if you notice some of these symptoms:
- Loss of hearing
- Feeling that the ear is plugged
- Feeling that the ear is filled with fluid
Get rid of earwax and ear infection
Let`s see what are the two ingredients for the remedy that can help with earwax and infection. You will need only alcohol and white vinegar.
Mix both ingredients in a small bowl. Start with smaller quantities to test the effects first, like a teaspoon of each. With a clean eye dropper pour half doze to one of the ears, tilt the head for about a minute and then let the solution drain from the ear. Repeat with the other one.

Use these tips, like the 2-ingredient remedy or using ear plugs, to prevent the infection of even happening, this way your ears will always be healthy.
