“Splash out on some ear protection and enjoy great swimming without the pain of ear infections.”

Thousands of swimmers will suffer agonising ear infections this year because they have failed to take simple preventive measures, warn swimming equipment suppliers Swim Stop.

Swimmer’s Ear – a painful outer ear infection which affects one in every 250 bathers annually – is caused by water trapped in the ear canal after swimming.

Many competitive swimmers know the agony of Swimmer’s Ear all too well. Some cannot race or train until it is healed because of the pain.

Aside from the pain, other symptoms can include itchiness, redness, swelling, fever and ringing in the ears. Infections can lead to hearing difficulties and even permanent hearing loss if they are not treated correctly.

But Swimmer’s Ear can be easily prevented with the simple use of high quality swimming ear plugs, such as Putty Buddies and Ear BAND - it.

These soft, comfortable silicon ear plugs are recommended by doctors and by Swim Stop, which has at least 10 years of experience in providing high quality swim products to competitive and leisure swimmers.

Putty Buddies together with the Ear BAND –it offer convenient, proven ear protection for both children and adults. They should be inserted into the ears before swimming then allowed to expand gently to give a snug, comfortable fit.

Providing increased protection the Ear Band-It, a comfortable neoprene and Velcro band, has been designed to hold the Putty Buddies swimming ear plugs in place. It fits securely over the ears to help stop water entering the ear canals.

As well as providing ear protection for swimming, Putty Buddies and Ear Band-It can also be essential for water enthusiasts with grommets or eardrum perforations – or for who simply do not like getting water in their ears.

Avoiding ear infections is a global issue. More than 700,000 people have grommets placed in their ears each year in the US alone. Using ear putty and Ear Band–it can help to keep water and chemicals out of swimmers’ ears.

A spokesman for Swim Stop said: “Swimming is a great way to exercise, stay healthy and entertain the kids – whether at the beach, water park, lido or the local indoor pool.

“With so many fun activities – such as water polo, synchronised swimming and competitive swimming – Putty Buddies and the Ear Band-It will prevent children and adults prone to ear infections from missing out.

“Splash out on some ear protection and enjoy great swimming without the pain of ear infections.”
