In summer we enjoy the sea or swimming pools and so our ears are constantly wet.
This humidity can cause an external otitis, with pain, edema in the outer ear canal and fluid secretion from the ear.
The solution when we feel our ears wet, is not the use of cotton swabs which cause minor injuries in the ear and facilitate the entry of bacteria and therefore the creation of otits.
It is best, especially in summer, but all year long, to dry wet ears with a soft towel and if we still feel them wet, to add some warm air from a hair drier.
If fluid is trapped inside the ear after dives it will feel very blocked.
The solution is to pour some drops of pure alcohol in the ear and the water will evaporate immediately.
If, despite all this, an external otitis sets in and we feel itching and irritation in the ear we must start a treatment with antibiotic drops. If the symptoms persist, an examination by a specialized ENT doctor is needed.
