Summer is here. For us that means plenty of time in the water, either the pool or the lake. We spend a lot of the summer in the water. In the Midwest the winters are cold and the summers are hot! While spending time in the pool you do have to be careful. Things like sunburn and swimmer’s ear can be a bummer. Sunburn can be prevented by using a sunscreen that is for water and reapplied often enough to keep you protected. Swimmer’s ear is also very treatable. I think we deal with swimmer’s ear at least 3-4 times a summer! The sensations of clogged, full, and troublesome ears are often signs of swimmer’s ear. Thankfully Similasan makes both Children’s Ear Relief and Adult’s Ear Relief to help overcome swimmer’s ear. From the website:
Ear Relief ear drops help clear water trapped in the ear and the homeopathic ingredients help stimulate the body’s natural ability to soothe the ear, decrease the ear’s sensitivity to external factors such as water, cold, and drafts, reduce the clogged sensation in the ear, and return the ear to a water-free and comfortable condition.
We’ve had wonderful results with Similasan Ear Relief. This year I managed to be the first one with swimmer’s ear! Armed with my ear relief drops I was comfortable after just a few uses. It can be used up to 4 times daily for no more than 48 hours (or as directed by a doctor). When it comes to the kids, most kids aren’t too fond of ear drops. I find that if I lay them on my lap and we grab a book, it’s much easier. I lay them down, get the drops in and then keep them laying for a bit to allow the drops enough time to work and get in rather than sitting up and having everything run out. By the time we are done with the book, they forgot about the drops and they are up and moving around fine.
