While it's great to beat the heat, too much time in the water can spell trouble.
Specifically, with Otitis Externa-- Swimmer's Ear.
It's an infection of the ear canal, not behind the ear drum where typical ear infection occurs.
With swimmer's ear, the lining of the ear canal gets wet and stays wet.
Symptoms of Swimmer's Ear include pain, especially when you tug on the ear--
Sufferers may even notice a discharge from the ear, or a sensation that the ear is plugged up.
Treatment includes antibiotic ear drops-- and staying out of the pool for a least a week.
Prevention includes a five to ten minute break every hour from swimming-- tilting the ear to allow the canal to drain-- and if your doctor approves, butting a few drops of rubbing alcohol in the canal after swimming-- to speed drying.
These simple tips just might keep your summer from going down the tubes.
