Summer ENT Tips:

 
Swimmer’s Ear – The outer ear tissue is delicate and infection can occur often in swimmers, when water is trapped in the ear canal. Bathing or showering may also cause this common infection. In kids, the symptoms may include complaints of an earache (can be very painful), pulling on the ear lobe, and complaining of the ear feeling “full” or “blocked.” If caught early, the infection may be treated with ear drops. Acute cases may require antibiotics.
