Swimmer's ear, also known as otitis externa, is a bacterial infection most often caused by excess moisture in the ear. The best way to avoid swimmer's ear is to keep yours clean and dry.
This may help you in avoiding it:
1. Keep the water out while you're showering: use earplugs or a shower cap.
2. Protect your ear canals when swimming. Wear earplugs, and resist the urge to take a dip in any polluted waters like ponds.
3. Take special care when cleaning ears. Wipe outer ear clean with a soft cloth wrapped around your finger. You don't want to disrupt the natural wax coating in your ear that protects against harmful bacteria.

  1. I thought it was okay to let the water enter in your ear because it won't really go inside. I think I really need to have swimming cap.
