Specializes in Allergy and Immunology

Otitis externa: Water left in the ear canals can lead to fungal and/or bacterial infection. The water may get into the ear canals when swimming or showering. See doctor to get this treatment. In the future, put a drop of rubbing alcohol into ear canals if there is water there. But don't this now since this may really hurt you.
