Summer is here and it’s that time of the year for more pool time and an increase in Swimmer’s Ear.
An article in Healthy Hearing explains what it is, how you get Swimmer’s Ear and the problems it can cause – you can read the full article here: click here for the article
Here are some highlights from the article of things you can do to prevent Swimmer’s Ear:
* Dry your ears after swimming – with a towel or cloth
* Tilt your head to each side for excess water to drain
* Use earplugs or a swimming cap to keep water out of the ears
* Don’t use cotton swabs to dry the ears
* A hair dryer on a low setting can be used to dry out the ears
