8 ways to prevent tinnitus and ear infections during the cold season

Many people often have ear problems in winter because this is the time when they are susceptible to colds, sinusitis, and sore throat.

According to M.D. Truong Tri Tuong, Department of Ear, Nose and Throat, Tam Anh General Hospital, Ho Chi Minh City, due to changes in the body’s circulatory system in response to low temperatures, some people experience symptoms.

Sensory nerves in the ear are more exposed to cold temperatures than elsewhere.

Avoid going out when the weather is too cold

You should monitor the weather forecast daily to know when the temperature is lowest and avoid going out at that time.

Keep warm

Dressing warmly when going out helps the body avoid getting cold, leading to colds, rhinitis, and sore throat.

Ear plug

Covering your ears in the winter with earplugs, a scarf, or a hat helps keep your ears warm and prevents cold air and wind from blowing in, causing pain and sharpness in your ears, leading to headaches.

Keeping your ears warm helps prevent tinnitus and ear pain during the cold season.

Clean hearing aids

Hearing aid wearers should take care to keep them clean and dry in winter.

Vaccination

Seasonal flu is a common cause of nasopharyngitis, which can lead to otitis media.

Drink hot tea

Drinking a cup of hot herbal tea in the evening and early morning when waking up is very good for the ears, nose and throat.

Wear the mask

Everyone should wear a mask when going out to keep their nose and throat warm, avoid dust and other agents that cause nasopharyngitis and lead to ear diseases.

Do not abuse antibiotics

Doctor Tuong added that in our country, children are often given antibiotics without prescription by their parents when they are sick or have a fever.

Ear diseases, especially otitis media, can cause serious complications such as hearing loss, perforated eardrum, and deafness if not treated promptly and properly.
