A condition that many professional as well as amateur swimmers experience is Swimmer’s Ear. An infestation of germs that flourish is wet environments and find a safe spot in the ears of those who spend much of their time in water.
How can you prevent Swimmers Ear?
The condition can be painful and hurt much. The great news is it can be prevented. These are some ways that can help:
- Rubbing few drops of alcohol in the ear after a swim session causes water to evaporate. Olive oil on the other hand repels water and thus both can be preventive measures against the condition
- Scratching the ear or inserting sharp objects can cause abrasions, thus enabling microbes to infest the area. Special care should be taken to prevent this
- Clearing out earwax excessively can leave the ear open to infection
- Wearing earplugs while swimming provide protection
Why should one wear earplugs while swimming?
Right from the sensation of water being trapped in the ear canal, to having a buzz in the ear, to having to deal with ear infections, swimming is not a pleasant experience for some. The good news is, you can now focus on enjoying the pool with no worry of the above. Manning Audiology offers earplugs that are specially devised for swimmers and those who spend much of their time in the water.
How to choose the right earplug?
An earplug that would be a great fit for sleeping may not have the features needed for a swim. To help you in this process of selection, Manning Audiology experts provide you with assistance in choosing. Foam earplugs help with noise but are not much help with preventing water from going into the inner ear and thus do not make great swim earplugs.
Conical earplugs have multiple tiers that provide protection against water and this results in a dry ear. Silicone makes for a great material for earplugs as the material is washable and can be moulded easily into the desired shape.
These days polyurethane earplugs are popular too as they can be moulded. Corded earplugs come with an attachment that is water-resistant. Swimmers are not at the risk of losing their earplugs in the pool.
