Summer and NSSC Swim Team Season is upon us.  Swimmer's ear is an infection of the outer ear canal.  The medical term for it is acute otitis externa (AOE).  It is associated with "swimmers" since residual water in the ear canal creates a moist environment that can lead to bacterial growth.  However, any excess moisture due to sweat, other water activities, or even high humidity can contribute.  Some people are simply more prone to it than others. 

PREVENTION OF SWIMMERS' EAR
  1. Make a mixture of 2 parts rubbing alcohol and 1 part white vinegar.  Put into a droppper bottle.
  2. After leaving water for extended period, dry each ear and put 2-3 drops of solution into each ear.  DO NOT rub ear canal with towel or Q-tip.  Allow gravity to let the water out.
  3. After last swim, when at home, re-apply drops, let dry for 2 to 3 minutes, then gently blow the ear canal dry with a hair dryer on low heat and low speed.

5 FOODS SWIMMERS SHOULD EAT
  1. Whole Grains: cereals, bagels, pasta and bread. (These provide you good long lasting energy)
  2. Proteins: Peanut butter, lean meat and dairy. (You should have protein before and after workouts)
  3. Fresh Fruits and Vegetables: Bananas are a great source of potassium and minerals. (Regulates water levels in the body and helps prevent cramping.)
  4. Calcium Rich Foods: Cheese, yogurt and milk. (For strong bones and protect from injury.)
  5. Fiber Rich Foods: Whole grains, apples, berries, almonds, legumes. (Helps keep athletes full and regulate the digestive tract.)
