With summer heat and lots of swimming and water play, I am sure there are many parents out there who are dealing with a familiar malady; earache, specifically, swimmer’s ear. I will never forget when I was starting my senior year in high school and one weekend I went with friends to a water park. I got swimmers ear for the first time ever and I was miserable. So miserable that I couldn’t participate during my cheerleading practice because jumping caused pain in my infected ear.
Warning Signs of Swimmer’s Ear:
- Your ears feel blocked or itch.
- The ear canal becomes red, swollen, perhaps even swelling shut.
- A milky fluid drains from your ear, or there is a crust around the opening of the ear canal.
- The ear becomes red, very painful, swollen and tender to touch, especially the cartilage in front of the ear canal.
My daughter has seemed to inherit my penchant for ear aches. She hasn’t had many ear infections in her life, only 2 or 3 (she is nine) but one of them was so bad we think it led to hearing loss in her ear. For her other ear aches we have been using the same product for YEARS, and that is Similasan Ear Relief Drops. They are an ear drying aid as well as a drop that eases symptoms of clogged ears. I found these drops years ago when I was given a bottle of Similasan Pink Eye Relief by my pharmacist, when my daughter had got pink eye. I still use both products to this day! They make both regular and kids versions of the homeopathic, natural drops. I love that they are natural and I am not adding more chemicals to our ears.
Did you know- Similasan Ear Relief was the #1 Pharmacist Recommended ear drop formula for the 10th year in a row!
Similasan is available and stores nationwide, mass merchants and specialty medicine stores like CVS and Walgreens. You can stay updated on Similasan’s range of products, including the ear drops by following their social media accounts -
