Dry Land Exercises For Swimmers And Water Polo Players
My daughter gets nose bleeds. She is a swimmer and a water polo player. Her nose bleeds last around 20 to 30 mins. what should I do?
Supportive care: Nosebleeds are common when the mucosal lining of the nose gets irritated or inflamed, which could be worsened by constant exposure to chlorinated water. I would recommend saline drops or, better yet, vaseline at night and before her polo practice/matches to prevent irritation & associated bleeding. If this doesn't help, she may need to have the vessels cauterized w/ silver nitrate by a doctor. ...Read more
Can happen: If there is enough swelling of the skin/tissue in the ear canal, fluids (both internal and external) can get trapped in there. I've seen all kinds of secretions in ears related to otitis externa (swimmer's ear). Once you start the drops, often which contain a topical steroid, the swelling will go down and that feeling of trapped fluid will quickly resolve. ...Read more

Surfer. Had swimmers ear in 1 ear,pain on n off. Didn't go in water for one month and took amox for 10 days. First day back in water had pain in ear. ?
Swimmers Ear: Amoxicillin is not the appropriate treatment for otitis externa (swimmers ear). Staying out of the water is part of the treatment but you may need ear drops. I like ciprodex which is part steroid and part antibiotic. Your swimmer's ear may never have resolved in the first place. I would advise you see a doctor and have them look in your ear to see if you still have it. ...Read more
I had swimmers ear. I have no pain or swelling. I have stopped using the ear drops. But my left ear feels like it has water and sounds spongy?
I went swimming and I have water trapped on my ear. I used swimmers ear drops, peroxide, alcohol and vinegar mixture, yet I have no relief.
Cerumen : Cerumen or "wax" in the ear canal can trap water against the tympanic membrane (ear drum). Rubbing alcohol helps dehydrate the ear canal. If this persists an otaryngologist should take a look and remove the wax, skin debris or hair causing these symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have swimmer's ear and I have water in my ears and used a q-tip and yellow ear wax came out. Is that what's holding the water in?
Yes: Wax build up is the ear canal is very common. Some people suffer from it more then others. Water can get trapped between the ear drum and the wax. This increase the chance of infection especially the outer ear which we refer to as swimmer's ear or otitis externa. Infection can also sets in from impaction of the wax which is caused by q-tip usage. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
