Been getting a lot of ear infections for the last 2 years and I really don't have money to be going everytime I get them. What can I do to prevent them?

Depends on type. Two general types of ear infections: external/outer, sometimes referred to as swimmer's ear and middle - more often seen in children. As you are an adult i will focus on outer. Avoid water exposure, q-tips and any type of manipulation in the ear canal. Be wary of hairspray as well. If you swim frequently consider otc alcohol/acetic acid solutions. Treat eczema if you have.
