Pain is increased when you have a moderate case of swimmers ear. To alleviate the pain, take some Tylenol and use a hot compress. In a pan, pour hot water, rubbing alcohol, and Epsom salt. Dip a clean washcloth into the pan and wring excess water out of the cloth. Let it sit on the ear for about five to 10 minutes. Once it cools, put the pan back on the stove to get it hot again and repeat a second time.
Do this twice a day. This will help with the pain and swimmers ear. Every time you mess with your ear, make sure your hands are clean. You don’t want any bacteria creeping into your ear canal. The swimmer’s ear is already at a stage where it’s causing you trouble. Swimmers ear can still be healed even at this stage, but it can get worse as well if you don’t take care of it properly.
