What are common causes of outer ear infections?
Outer ear infections, also known as swimmer's ear, are typically caused by bacterial infections that occur in the outer ear. However, they can also be caused by fungi or yeast. Certain actions like cleaning your ear with cotton buds or using hearing aids or earplugs can lead to damage in the ear canal, increasing the likelihood of developing an outer ear infection.
What are common symptoms of outer ear infection (otitis externa)?

Who should not use EarCalm?
EarCalm should not be used by anyone who has ever had an allergic reaction to acetic acid or any of the other ingredients. EarCalm should also not be used by anyone under the age of 12 or anywhere other than in the ear. If you have a perforated eardrum, or if you think you may have, consult your doctor before using this medicine.
How do I use EarCalm?
Before using a new bottle of EarCalm, shake well and press the pump down several times until you get a fine spray. Make sure you do not point the nozzle at yourself or someone else. Each time the pump is pressed down, one measured dose will be delivered. To use, place the nozzle tip gently into your ear, press the pump once to deliver the measured dose, and spray one measured dose into each affected ear at least three times a day (morning, evening, and after swimming, showering or bathing), or as directed by your doctor/pharmacist. Leave at least 2 to 3 hours between doses. Continue treatment until two days after symptoms have disappeared, but no longer than 7 days.
What should I do if I experience pain while using EarCalm?
If you experience any pain, stop using EarCalm and call your doctor immediately. Similarly, if symptoms worsen or do not improve within 48 hours or if hearing is affected, stop treatment and call your doctor.
How long can I use EarCalm?
EarCalm should not be used for more than 7 days. If symptoms persist, contact a healthcare provider. If you forget to use EarCalm, do not worry. Use it as soon as you remember, then go on as before.
What are the possible side effects of using EarCalm?
Like all medicines, EarCalm can have side effects, but not everybody gets them. Some possible side effects include sensitivity or allergy, which would require you to stop using the spray, and temporary stinging or a burning sensation for the first few days of treatment.
How can I reduce the risk of outer ear infections?
To reduce the risk of outer ear infections, it's important to keep the inside of your ears dry. You can do this by avoiding getting shampoo and water in your ears during showers or baths, and by drying your ears with a towel or hair dryer afterwards. When swimming, use ear plugs and/or a tight-fitting swimming cap to prevent water from getting in your ears. Additionally, it's important not to clean your ear canal with cotton buds or other objects, and to see a doctor or nurse if you have a build-up of earwax rather than trying to remove it yourself.
