WHAT IS SWIMMER’S EAR?
‘Swimmer’s ear’ (in medical terms also known as otitis externa) is a painful condition where the skin in the ear canal becomes infected. ‘Swimmer’s ear’ occurs when water gets trapped in the outer ear canal. It is a common condition among swimmers and active watersports enthusiasts such as surfers. Anyone can get ‘Swimmer’s ear’ even those who are not fully immersed in water. Having just a small amount of water in your ear can create the perfect breeding ground for bacteria which cause inflammation, irritation, and infection. When water gets stuck in the ear, bacteria can get beneath the surface of the skin causing ‘Swimmer’s ear’.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
Apart from general discomfort, symptoms can be: ear pain, itching and irritation in and around the ear canal, redness and swelling of the outer ear and ear canal, a feeling of pressure and fullness inside the ear, scaly skin in and around the ear canal, which may peel off, discharge from the ear, which can be either thin and watery or thick and pus-like, tenderness when the ear or jaw is moved, swollen and sore glands in the throat, some hearing loss could be possible.
