Can anyone recommend the most effective remedy for preventing ear infections? I know of 'Swim Ear' but heard about a review that said it felt like they were pouring acid into their ear because it burnt so much. Hmm... think I'll give that a miss. Another suggestion was 50/50 water vinegar or 50/50 water alcohol mix. I've bought some swimming earplugs but apparently these aren't a 100% guarantee and could potentially damage your ears.
Most suggest the following (after snorkelling/diving):
1. Dry your ears well.
2. Rinse with bottled/clean water.
3. Apply ear drops/mixture.
I've also read that applying a small amount of olive oil the night before or in the morning can help to lubricate the ear, as drying out the ear too much can also cause infection. Lots of helpful advise but I feel like I'm back to square one again. Please help?!
