Body Parts You’re Washing Too Often

1. Ear canal 

Usually, this area is cleaned by using cotton swabs and this might not be the best idea, since most doctors agreed that this act can cause more harm than good. The ear canal is a very fragile part of the body and the cotton swabs can cause irritation and swelling that can lead to a very serious ear infection.

Even if it looks gross, the wax in the ear canals is actually protective against external ear infections. If too much wax affects your hearing or you just need the urge to clean your ears, talk to your doctor who can help your ears in a safe way. How often do you clean your ears? Is it more than once per week?
