Swimmer’s ear — lose the infection and dive back in

Swimmer’s ear is an infection of the ear canal. Your ear might feel itchy, sore, or mildly painful. Swimmer’s ear is usually caused by water getting trapped inside the ear canal. This can encourage bacteria or fungus to grow.

If you’ve been diagnosed previously with swimmer’s ear and treatment is appropriate for you, we can prescribe ear drops to help.


We offer Flumetasone/Clioquinol ear drops to treat swimmer’s ear
