If you enjoy catching Z’s in peace and quiet, you might have tried sleeping with earplugs in your ears. But is it safe to do? According to Medical News Today, the answer is yes….and no.
Earplugs May Cause Earwax Impaction
Let me explain: sleeping with earplugs in your ears won’t harm you, but they may cause excess earwax to build up in your ears, causing earwax impaction. But don’t worry, earwax impaction happens to be our specialty (evil laugh).
Over time, impacted ears may turn into ear infections. While symptoms for impacted ears include a feeling of fullness in the ear, tinnitus, itching, discomfort, hearing problems, and more, ear infection symptoms may be more severe. Symptoms for ear infections include pain in the ear, itching, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, hearing problems, and tinnitus.
