First and foremost, it's best to not make sleeping with earplugs on an every night habit if at all possible. By not wearing them every night, you're giving your ears a chance to rest and drain built-up earwax. Second, it is vital to take proper care and maintenance of your ear plugs.
Thereof, do earplugs hurt your ears?
So in that respect, it is safe to wear earplugs to bed. As far as the health of your ear goes, studies show that long-term use of foam earplugs can cause earwax to build up or become impacted. You'll end up with constant ringing of the ears (tinnitus), pain, or hearing loss.
Can wearing earplugs cause problems?
One way to achieve that is using earplugs. While earplugs are quite useful, their application should be treated with care as they can cause problems including discomfort and inconvenience, and in rare cases, issues such as inner ear infections, tinnitus and hearing loss.
