Ear and Eye Infections

 Bacteria such as mold and mildew may be living in your shower-head. The bacteria in your shower-head could be making you sick. 

Examples of bacteria that could be found in your shower head

                                                                         Legionella bacteria (can cause Legionnaires’ disease and Pontiac fever)

Pseudomonas aeruginosa (can trigger ear and eye infections)

Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (linked to digestive conditions including

Crohn’s disease)

Dr. Brown from the Cleveland Clinic says for the most part bacteria from your shower doesn’t cause a threat in healthy people. The only way to get sick is to inhale the bacteria deeply.

A shower-head is easier to clean than you think.  If you don’t mind removing the shower-head from the pipe. Soak the shower-head in equal parts of vinegar and water solution for a couple hours to over night.  Another solution is to take a gallon size baggie with the vinegar solution in it. Wrap the baggie around the shower-head and secure it with a tie wrap or a bread wrapper. Soak it for a few hours to over night. If this doesn’t seem to work, consider replacing it.

A little bit of maintenance is all it takes to remove mold/mildew and bacteria in your shower-head.
