Swimmers Ear


My daughters have been spending some time at the local pool. It has been redone. They made the pool bigger and added some really cool slides. Well, Sunday when my girls got home from the pool my daughter(1) told me that her ear hurt. We got some swimmers ear meds over the counter, but seemed only to add to the pain. I tried several homeopathic remedies, to no avail.

Finally, I took her to the doc. Yes, it was, and always is a last resort when I don't have insurance. So, the nurse is taking her vitals and asking what's wrong. I told her, "I think she has swimmers ear." The nurse moves her ear and asks if that hurts, daughter(1) said it did, as she tried to pull away. The nurse said with a grimace on her face, "I think it's swimmers ear, but the doc can confirm it. He does have a great remedy for swimmers ear when this is all cleared up." She leaves and a few minutes later the doc comes in. He takes a quick look in both of daughter(1)'s ears and says in that very matter-of-a-fact doctors all knowing tone, "She has swimmers ear."

I smiled and said, "Well, hell, I knew that. I have exhausted all my options with home remedies, this was my last option."

"I have a prevention to keep her from getting swimmers ear in the future, but this has to be completely cleared up before you use it. Would you like to know what it is?"

"Of course!"

"1 oz of white vinegar and 1 oz of rubbing alcohol. Drop 5 drops in each ear about half an hour after she gets out of the pool and you know she won't be getting back in."

Time at the pool : $2

Doctors visit : $88

Visit to DQ : $5

Perscription, ear dropper and rubbing alcohol : $28

Prevention for swimmers ear: Priceless.

My daughter was in so much pain. When my sons eardrums would perforate, he was in less pain. She is doing better, but the one ear is still a bit sore. She's disappointed that she can't shove a ton of food in her mouth at one time. Oh my, she just might have to eat like a little lady! Poor thing! hahaha

    Quoting rm_Ox612:
    Oh, right, this post. I meant to comment on this. I hope this isn't too late.

    I've had a lot of ear problems over the years, and I'd say: careful with the alcohol. I knew somebody, a doctor, who mixed up the following recipe for his daughter: equals parts boiled (not boiling) water, vinegar, rubbing alcohol. Doesn't take much, maybe a teaspoon of each.

    The last time I had a real problem, the ear doc told me equal parts water and vinegar. When I told him about my other doc friend's recipe, he looked a little uneasy.

    And I've done real damage (mostly healed now) with just plain alcohol.

    Also, that hydrogen peroxide you get in the drugstore for sterilizing cuts? It's the wrong stuff. It's not like the special ear-wax-removing peroxide. Something about anhydrous. More experience on my part and my ear doc's advice.

    Excessive ear wax buildup causing problems? Drop of olive oil in the ear every day. More doc advice. (My primary care physician, once.)

    Finally: don't put anything in your ear smaller than your elbow.

    I'm sorry this isn't about sex (IVE GOT A 10-INCH COCK LETS FUCK), but your daughter might think it's a little more important.

    Take care.

I've been using the recipe my doc gave me for my daughter(2). She has been swimming most every day. When her ears are a little tender after swimming it seems to help. Believe me I try natural remedies before I go to the doc. I use the ear cones to remove ear wax and other debris.

My blog was not about sex either, glad to know you have a 10-inch cock, but I'll have to decline your invitation to fuck. * smile *
