No More Swimmers Ear!
Steer Clear of Swimmers Ear with Aqua Ears!! Wow…I’m a poet and didn’t even know it! Okay, in all seriousness. Swimmers ear is NO fun!! Back when I was a kid and swam in the local pools and lakes, I’d end up with swimmers ear EVERY year. It’s so annoying and painful. My son was born with hearing issues, so we try our best to keep his ears nice and dry just to avoid infections and irritation.
Aqua Ears are silicone earplugs that basically mold to the shape of the inside of your ear. It basically seals out water which in turn makes for safer, happier ears! Did you know that the CDC says that germs along with water loving bacteria such as Pseudomonas found in pools and other water venues are one of the most common causes of swimmers ear (aka otitis externa). If you’ve never had it, what happens is that water gets trapped in the ear canal for long periods of time and causes pain, itching, redness and even infection. It’s misery!
That’s why we like to use some sort of earplugs when swimming, just because it makes ME feel better knowing that I’m at least trying to keep my little guy from getting any unnecessary ear germs! I was excited to find out that Aqua Ears has a new line of fun and colorful licensed character earplugs! These include:
- Finding Nemo
- Hello Kitty
- Spongebob Squarepants
- Dora the Explorer
- …and other Disney characters!
We were sent a variety of characters and little guy always had a difficult time choosing which one to use when we’d go swimming. I think his favorite was the Finding Nemo though 😉 They fit his ears great and were nice and comfortable for him to wear. We didn’t have any issues with them falling out. If your child’s ears are smaller, you can also tear some of the silicone off so that they fit better.
AquaEars are available at your local retailer for an average retail price of $4.00, and include a convenient carrying case. You can also find Aqua Ears here on Amazon if you like to shop online! For more information, visit http://www.cirrushealthcare.
