What bad habits in daily life will affect hearing?

4. Frequently go to KTV and other high-decibel places. Even short stays in these high-decibel locations can cause hearing damage.


5. Emotional and nervous. The most obvious example is a quarrel. Whether it is a conflict within the family or between colleagues, once a dispute breaks out, anger may lead to tinnitus or worse. In addition, long-term mental stress and being in a depressed and unhappy environment can lead to insomnia, and over time can also cause damage to the auditory nerve.

6. Often use hard objects to pick out the ears. Using ear picks, toothpicks and other hard objects to pick out the ears can easily damage the skin of the ear canal and even the eardrum.

Aminoglycoside antibiotics are ototoxic to a very small number of people, such as streptomycin, gentamicin, amikacin, etc. These antibiotics are used in the treatment of certain bacterial infections. It is necessary and effective, but when tinnitus or hearing loss occurs while taking the medication, the medication needs to be stopped in time. Infants and young children should choose non-aminoglycoside drugs when possible, and it is best to ask the parents or elders of the child if they have any history of drug poisoning hearing. If so, try to avoid the use of such antibiotics.

11. Stay up late. Today's young people are all "head-down mobile phone users". "Good luck, let's eat chicken tonight" is a popular saying in a game. In order to be able to eat chicken, it has become commonplace for many players to stay up late playing games!
