  • Remember the old saying ‘nothing smaller than your elbow goes in your ear’. That means no; cotton buds, bobby pins, q-tips, pen lids etc.

  • Don’t put water in your ears, try and keep them dry.

  • Avoid prolonged use of earbuds or earplugs.

  • If you do use earbuds or earplugs, make sure they are clean before placing them in your ears.
