That time of the year again - OTC for swimmer's ear?

Recommended Posts

Yes, put a couple of drops of vinegar in each ear.


Mix up some vinegar and rubbing alcohol. After swimming, put a couple of drops in each ear. It doesn't matter if it runs out, as long as it got all the way in (she should be able to "hear" that)


If you let it go too long, it will get raw and the vinegar will hurt, so put it in after every swim.

Hey, that's a good idea! My daughter also hated the coldness of it, which I of course couldn't understand because I love the feel of its icy freshness flowing down inside my ear and bubbling. I tried microwaving it for her for a few seconds, but it got too hot very quickly!
