Do your kids love to swim any chance they get during the summer? If they do, they may be prone to swimmers ear. Swimmers ear is caused by water or bacteria sitting in your ear canal which can cause an infection and become painful. Usually, a prescription ear drop will clear it up, but if you want a way to prevent it from happening I'm going to share with you this home remedy given to us by our children's pediatrician to prevent swimmers ear.
PLEASE NOTE: I am not a doctor, this recipe is passed out to all patients at my pediatricians. This recipe is NOT recommended for swimmers with tubes in their ears and will not clear up an infection. It is only recommended for preventative measures. If you are unsure please check with your child's Doctor first.
- 1 oz Rubbing Alcohol
- 1 oz White Vinegar
- Small Jar
Mix Ingredients in your jar.
After Swimming, put 3-4 drops in both ears.
