Swimmer's ear is a bacterial infection affecting the skin of the outer year. The condition results from swimming or the ear being exposed to water for a prolonged period. The condition can occur in acute and chronic forms. Itching, drainage, swelling, and pain are some of the most common symptoms of this condition. Here are some natural remedies to deal with swimmer's ear.
Alcohol and vinegar are effective natural treatments for this condition. Take a solution of 50% rubbing alcohol and 50% white vinegar. Drop a few drops to the area that is hurting with an eye dropper. Allow it to be for a few seconds and then drain. The alcohol will help evaporate the water in the area. Vinegar will help relieve the condition with its antibacterial properties. Garlic is another effective solution to heal this condition. Garlic has natural antimicrobial and pain-relieving properties to deal with this condition. Crush a few garlic cloves and add a few drops of olive oil. Heat the mixture until the garlic become brown. Strain the mixture and allow the oil to cool. Pour a few drops of this oil to the affected ear. Do this twice a day for best results.
