Waterlogged Ears

When you swim or take a shower, the water enters the ear canal and interferes with your hearing. Most people tilt their heads to drain out the water. But, there is a better and much easier way to get rid of this irritating problem. Hold your hair dryer a few inches away from the ear. This will help you dry the fluid.

The friction caused from the shoe rubbing against the foot can cause fluid to collect between layers of skin giving birth to bubble-like blisters. Avoid popping the blister and let it dry. But if you wish to pop it, make sure that your hands are clean and you use a sterile needle.

Constant Sneezing

If you have sneezing fits regularly, it may mean that you are allergic to something in the environment. It can also indicate a viral infection. Many people are allergic to pollens and animal dander. Try to stay at a distance from such irritants.

Stiff Neck

When you use your laptop or smartphone for a long duration, it can strain the neck muscles, causing pain and stiffness. To avoid this, make sure that you are sitting in the correct posture. While in office, position your chair, computer keyboard and monitor in a comfortable position. The same must be done at home.

Chapped Lips

Dry air can make lips dry. Thus, the cold weather or too much exposure to the sun can make your lips chapped. Apply balm more frequently which will shield the delicate skin of your lips and will heal them quickly.
