How To Treat Swimmer’s Ear

Does your child tend to get swimmer’s ear?  I don’t know about your kids but my kids tend to get swimmer’s ears whenever they go out for a swim.  It never fails, especially with the older one.  However, this does not stop us from letting the boys enjoy their summers.  They love to swim and we make sure they are able to enjoy their swimming and the time afterward.

This post is sponsored by Hyland Health. However, all opinions are mine. 

So, what is swimmer’s ear?  Swimmer’s ear is an infection in the outer ear canal which runs from the eardrum to the outside of the head.  This is often brought on by water remaining in the ear after swimming causing a moist environment that helps with bacterial growth.  Other causes of swimmer’s ear may be putting foreign objects in the ear such as a cotton swab, fingers or any other object. This could cause damage to the inner lining of the eardrum, therefore, causing swimmer’s ear.  

Symptoms that your child may be experiencing: 

  • itching in the ear canal
  • slight redness in the ear canal
  • mild discomfort (your child may be pulling at their ears)
  • fever

Other causes of earaches may be due to cold, flu, or allergies.   

Hyland’s 4 Kids Earache Relief has been our go-to for our boys.  We love that this is a homeopathic option in treating the symptoms.   It provides natural relief for pain, throbbing, irritability, and sleeplessness associated with ear pain.   The ear drops are gentle and do not conflict with any medications.

In preparing for your child’s swimming fun, be sure to grab Hyland’s 4 Kids Earache Relief. It can be found at your local CVS pharmacy. Keep this in our medicine cabinet or if you are traveling, make sure you pack this along.  No one wants to be in pain after having a fun day of swimming!

Pin it for later!

***Please note that Hyland’s 4 Kids Earache Relief does not cure but only able to help treat the symptoms.  If the symptoms persist or worsens, please seek professional help.

    I had no idea about this product. My kids are very little and have not gotten swimmers ear before since they don’t really swim underwater but this is good to know for later.

    This is great advice! Swimmer’s ear is a condition you can’t necessarily prevent even if you do everything right. It’s good to know that there are some great options to treat the condition and provide relief.
