Inflammation of the ear, which in medical terms is called otitis, is more often observed at low temperatures, with the cause of it being hypothermia, colds, and the fact that many young people prefer not to wear a hat in frosty weather.
However, in summer the number of people who seek medical help with such a disease does not decrease.

According to experts, it is in the heat that the inflammation of the ears develops, because in addition to bathing in cold water, the number of colds increases due to the use of ice drinks. In order to prevent its occurrence, it is enough to observe some precautions.
One of them is the mandatory use of a rubber cap or special devices to close the ears during bathing, especially if the water in the pond is not quite clean. Some doctors do not advise after bathing to wipe their ears with special cotton buds, as well as use them to clean the earwax.
