Depends: There are several types of ear infections. Inner, middle , and external or outer. You need to be specific when asking a question. The typical swimmer's ear is an outer infection. You can treat that with a 50:50 mixture of isopropyl alcohol and clear vinegar( acetic acid) applied with an ear syringe 2-3 times a day. If that doesn't work in 7 days, see ENT doctor.
