School is out and it is getting hot outside. Summer is here!
For many of us, that means spending a lot of time keeping cool at the pool, but it can also mean that your child could come down with a bout of swimmer's ear.
Swimmer’s ear is an infection of the skin that lines the outer ear canal. When moisture or water sits in the ear for a prolonged period of time, it can encourage the growth of bacteria.
It’s a common infection that can be very painful, but it can be prevented.
