ive heard of it, but i thought it was just an ear infection, infact i think my mum had it she just had to stop swimming for abit and wait for it to get better.

never heard of it but I get quite bad eczema in my inner ears and I find that cotton wool soaked in olive oil and shoved in my ear overnight helps relive it slightly. (usually until I can get to the doc for some steroid drops)

Tennis elbow
Runner's knee
Golfer's wrist

and now Swimmer's ear!

Are there any sports without their own ailment?!?

I've always got itchy ears,often weeping,like fluorescent yellow colour ( eww I know )had tons of ear infections the past few yrs,am seeing a consultant at moment,have another appointment to go to next mth infact but they don't know what it is.When I went he requested me to go for a blood test to check for allergies only thing is tho when I was at G.P for some reason a bit back I asked if results back and they said no results on comp for any blood tests so I don't know if they lost or if they just going back to the consultant,but usually a copy goes to your G.P regardless of who requested the test.Don't think the tablets and drops work on prescription,they only ease the infection,always comes back.I hardly going swimming,and I've been told to keep water out my ears when washing hair etc,by sticking in cotton wool with vaseline on other end for some waterproof seal.Doesn't make any difference,done other measures too,wore hats in Winter to keep wind and cold out,all makes no difference.Sometimes my whole ear on the outside feels numb,sometimes its red behind the ear,I get various symptoms all time but as I said they no idea whats causing it.

Snap.....half a bottle of wine & 2 litres of magners :santa:

.....that's probaly why i couldn't read the post clearly:w00t:

I could be confusing it with something else but i think swimmers ear is caused by water getting trapped in the inner ear and all the **** that's in the water irritates your ear and can cause infections etc.

What I dont get is all those above appear to be are ailments caused by excessive movement of limbs etc that are play a big part of the sport.

Swimmers should use their arms and legs to better use! :giggle:

Seriously though, Id imagine its just a sympton of chlorine in the ear and not washing it out and drying off properly after a swim. It probably needs to clear up before continuing.

Probably some antibiotics to clear it if its an infection.

Just make sure you go to see your G.P about it and it might be worth getting some kind of waterproof ear plugs cos its not nice an ear infection.

I remember when I was coming back from Spain, my ears popped on the plane and about a tablespoon of pool water came dribbling out my ears. So I would recommend earplugs while swimming. :-D

yes i also suffer from swimmers ear. if u go and c ur GP they will prob give u some scalp lotion to put in ur ears. works a treat and also use ear plugs when swimming to lessen the effects of going under the water. hope this help (hope this works its my first post)

i've had it... but i have had quite a few problems with my ears...

My swimmers ear hurt like hell, my gp gave me some anti-inflammatory stuff to help soothe the pain. Worked, but my ears are still dodgy!

Gonna have those ear candle things done soon :)
