Yay! Yay! Give a cheer, summer's pretty much here. With summer comes more fun in the sun and that usually involves lots more swimming. With more swimming comes more opportunity to get swimmers ear. I don't want to bum out your pool plans so we are posting our fave Pediatrician, Dr. Deepa Sukumar's swimmer's ear tips for you.
8 Symptoms, Causes and Prevention tips for Swimmer's Ear
A Mom tip from a friend of mine (who is not a doctor) is if your child is prone to swimmer's ear put a few drops of alcohol in your child's ear after each swim. She did this for her kids and she said they didn't have any problems with swimmer's ear.
For the last three years one of my kids has gotten swimmer's ear every summer. This is the year we decided to put our "stake in the ground" that we will be more proactive so we, too, have a summer with no swimmer's ear!
