Otitis Externa

( Swimmer's Ear ) Otitis externa is an infection involving the ear canal.

Treatment for Otitis Externa

Treatment involves the use of antibiotic eardrops and keeping the ear dry. When the ear canal closes off, a wick is inserted into the ear canal and left in place for a week or two. As more antibiotic eardrops are used, the wick swells and the ear canal opens.
