With the arrival of the summer season, children spend more time enjoying outdoor activities, raising their risk of suffering ear infections (otitis). In this article, we explain why parents need to take greater care of their children’s health while they play outside and what can be done to prevent an infection or inflammation of the ear.
Our ears need special care and attention during the summer to protect them from the risk factors encountered at this time of year. During the vacation period, we may take part in water sports, travel on airplanes, go to music festivals or enjoy other activities that may cause hearing impairment.
Our ears perceive the sounds that surround us and are continually exposed to the noise pollution that we ourselves create. Often, we overlook this noise and forget how important it is to look after our hearing health. Have you ever asked yourself what you can do to protect your ears?
