Why should I wear hearing protection when showering?
If you have sensitive ear canals and your ears are often inflamed, you shouldn't be without suitable hearing protection even when showering or bathing. This is because water in the ear is not only unpleasant, but can also lead to inflammation and pain in the ear. Children in particular often have sensitive ears, which should be protected from water ingress.
What kind of hearing damage can be caused by water in the ear?
If water collects in the ear while swimming or showering, this often results in reduced hearing. Hearing in the affected ear is then perceived as dull. In most cases, the water dissolves by itself after a short time. In some cases, however, it can remain for several hours and can cause inflammation in sensitive ear canals. This can be very painful and if it is not treated, it can even cause permanent hearing damage. Especially water from public swimming pools or lakes can contain inflammatory pathogens that cause ear infections.
Which hearing protection is suitable for showering?
There are now various types of earplugs that have been specially developed for use in water. These not only reduce loud ambient noise but also reliably prevent water from entering the ears. They also protect your ears from ear infections when showering. There are also earplugs that have been specially adapted for children and their sensitive ears.
How does hearing protection work when showering?
