Ways to Prevent Earache

There are some general ways that can help to prevent earache.

They are listed below:

  • Do not poke ear buds into the ear to remove wax from the ear.
  • Protect the babies from the common colds during the first year of their life. Because most of the ear infections start with the cold. Maintain a proper hygiene.
  • Contact with the second hand tobacco smoke should be avoided, as it increases the severity of ear infections.
  • Inflammation results from allergies is one of the contributing factors for ear infection and hence allergies should be controlled.
