Dry Water in the Ear
Swimmer’s ear can be a very painful condition, resulting in nearly 2.4 million healthcare visits in the United States every year. Children in Orlando, Florida; Kissimmee, Florida; Gulf Shores, Alabama; and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina areas are all at risk of contracting Swimmer’s ear through water activity in the ocean, lakes, swimming pools and even the bath tub.
If water becomes trapped inside of the ear canal, it can create a moist environment that fosters bacterial growth and leads to infection resulting in swimmer’s ear. Ear irritation, discomfort and redness are all identifying symptoms of swimmer’s ear, while advanced cases may include fever and swelling. Although children are more susceptible to contracting swimmer’s ear, teenagers and adults may also be at risk. To reduce the risk of more serious complications such as hearing loss, pain, heightened sensitivity and eardrum inflammation, it is necessary to take precautionary steps by completely drying water in ears using a preventative treatment.
