Why Are Silicone Plugs Bad For Your Ears?

Professionals say that silicone stands out as a popular choice because they are comfortable, inexpensive, and lightweight. However, silicone has a problem since it is bacteria-friendly and can lead to infections and blowouts especially if used to stretch, something we are keen to avoid.

Are Wooden Plugs Good For Your Ears?

Wood is not an appropriate ear stretching material. You should only try them when your ear is fully healed and is not in danger of being infected or aggravated into flaring up.

Are Teardrop Plugs Bad For Your Ears?

As long as the teardrop plug is not too heavy, you can wear them for a limited duration to avoid stretching the ear into a lopsided shape. Alternate between circular shaped plugs and teardrops to ensure the shape doesn’t get affected.

Are Shaped Ear Plugs Safe?

The answer depends on two things; Is the size comfortable, and are your ears healed? If you answered yes to both queries, you can wear plugs that are not round, wear for short amounts of time and alternate between circular plugs. A good rule is to purchase a size down when buying different shaped plugs such as coffin plugs.

What Are Saddle Plugs For?
