Swimmer’s Ear Prevention
Swimmer's Ear Prevention
2 tablespoons (30 ml) Vinegar
2 tablespoons (30 ml) isopropyl alcohol
Swimmer's ear is the name for the bacteria infection that occurs in the outer ear canal (versus deep inside like a normal ear infection). It commonly occurs after a day of swimming when the protective layer of wax that covers this sensetive skin can be worn away. To help get rid of bacteria-rich water in the ears after swimming, and thus lower the risk of an infection developing later, make a slolution of equal parts vinegar and isopropyl alcohol and pack it in your beach bacg. Soak a cotton ball in the mixture and squeeze a few drops into each ear after swimming.
