Drops: You can make a solution with 50/50 vinegar and rubbing alcohol and drop it into the ear twice/day to prevent swimmer's ear and keep the ear canal clear of germs. Don't use this if there might be a hole in the eardrum from infection or tubes. Don't use if the ear hurts, since swimmer's ear is an infection of the skin of the canal and these would burn! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
