How long does it usually take to clear up Swimmers Ear?

Both of my little ones have it right now. I have been putting drops in there ears 4 times a day for 3 days now but they dont seem to be getting any better. Just wondering how long it usually takes to clear it up

It took us about a week. FYI- we were told after to always put a drop of white vinegar in each ear both before and after swimming. We haven't had a single problem since. Hope yours feel better soon!

Yall should be on the down hill side of it now.

Check this out...
Swimmer's ear - MayoClinic.com

Once you or someone you know has it you will do anything to prevent it. It really is painful.

If you read on to prevention...use 1 part vinegar to 1 part alcohol. Works great!!

Yep, thats what my kids dr told me to do for them when mine were younger. Alcohol works just as well. Not beer... though I guess you could try it, who knows

I was a competitive swimmer through my younger years and high school and was in the pool 2-3 times a day. Swimmers ear is the reason why I didn't swim in college. It is painful! Some people just seem prone to get them. I always did. Yet others I swam with never got it. It just has to go away on its own. I wore ear plugs when I swam, which helped. I wore wax ones, but that was 10 years ago. There may be better products on the market now. Good luck and I hope your little ones feel better soon!

My doctor too told me to put alchol, white vinegar, or the drops called swimmers ear in there ears after each time they swim and that will keep them from getting swimmers ear again. It is very painful i have never had it myself but i can tell from my kids crying that it is painful!! They are both saying that there ears are feeling better today so thats a good thing!!

To answer your question i dont think that it is the way the doctor explained it to me you naturally have acidic acid in your ears (ear wax) and when you get water in your ears it washes the ear wax out and you get a fungal infection in your ears (swimmers ear) He also says if you put drops in your ear after each time you swim (like swim ear) or alchol or white vinegar then it will dry up the water and help keep you from getting swimmers again.

Glad to hear they are feeling better. My son was always horrible to get swimmers ear, sometimes even from the shower!
