What is chronic ear congestion?

Chronic ear congestion, also called chronic otitis media (with or without effusion) and persistent middle ear effusion, is the recurring, prolonged inflammation of the middle ear, the space inside the ear behind the eardrum. The ears are made of outer and inner ear, separated by a few hairs. The outer ear collects sound and transmits it to the inner ear, which interprets and processes it. The inner ear is filled with liquid that’s constantly in motion. If the eardrum is damaged, the liquid can’t drain out of it, preventing it from hearing properly and often leading to chronic ear congestion. There are many different causes of chronic ear congestion. Some of them include: – Allergies – Food allergies, insect bites, and medications can cause ear congestion. -Congestion in the nose & throat. One of the little impacts of upper sinus issues can lead to ear congestion. – Earwax buildup – If your ears don’t get cleaned often enough, a build-up of earwax can cause chronic ear congestion.

Factors that contribute to chronic ear congestion

There are a few factors that contribute to chronic ear congestion. These include: – Upper respiratory issues. Using your ears “too much” – When you constantly wear your phone or earbuds in your ears, it can cause your ears to become dry and irritated. Try not to wear earbuds for more than an hour a day. – Earwax buildup – Earwax can get stuck in your ear and cause chronic ear congestion. If you have a build-up of earwax, try the following tips to see if they help.

Self care for chronic ear congestion

There are a few self-care tips that can help prevent and treat chronic ear congestion. Try these to see if they help. – Keep your ears clean – Clearing your ears with a cotton swab or Q-tips is an easy way to prevent and treat chronic ear congestion. – Keep your phone and earbuds away from your ears – If you constantly use your phone or earbuds in your ears, they can dry out your ears and lead to chronic ear congestion. – Use a humidifier – A dry environment can lead to chronic ear congestion. A humidifier can help keep your ears moist, preventing a build-up of earwax and helping to prevent chronic ear congestion.

6 Tips for preventing and treating chronic ear congestion

Ears need to stay moist in order to work properly. If your ears are too dry, they can become irritated and cause chronic ear congestion. Try the following tips to prevent and treat chronic ear congestion. – Moisturize your ears – If your ears are too dry, a moisturizer can help restore the moisture inside your ears. – Wear a hearing aid – If you have a hearing aid and it’s turned on, don’t wear it too loud. Wearing your hearing aid too loud can cause chronic ear congestion. – Avoid earplugs – If you’re sleeping, try not to use earplugs. They can make it harder to hear and can cause chronic ear congestion. – Avoid headphones – If you’re constantly wearing headphones, take them off during the day and when you’re sleeping.

Conclusion

There are many ways to prevent and treat chronic ear congestion. You can keep your ears clean and moisturized, wear hearing aids while you’re sleeping or during the day, avoid headphones, and stay away from dry environments. If your ears are always stuffy, try the tips above to see if they help. If nothing seems to work, it’s time to see your doctor for a diagnosis and treatment.
