Summertime is here and with many children that means swimming in a pool, lake,and ocean and even spending time at water parks. This time of year it is really important to provide ear protection for your kids.
According to the CDC, germs along with water-loving bacteria such as Pseudomonas found in pools and at the other recreational water venues, are one of the most common causes of swimmer's ear - also medically known as otitis externa. This is very painful. The ears can become red and itch, sometimes there can be pus in the ear. When water stays in the ear canal for long periods of time it provides the perfect environment for germs to grow and infect the ear.
I reviewed AquaEars for Children because my grandaughter keeps swimmer's ear in the summer. We have a pool and the grandkids practically live in the water. We have dealt with swimmer's ear many times and it is awful. The pain and itching has my grandaughter crying. There is always a trip to the Dr. for a round of antibiotic ear drops. This is why I was so happy to review these wonderful ear plugs.
AquaEars offer protection for water sensitive ears by sealing out the water and reducing ear discomfort,due to water pressure. These silicone plugs fit easily in the ears and they come 3 sets to a box. The box they come in is a plastic container for storing the ear plugs.
AquaEars are simple to use - just position the ear plug in your ear so that water will keep from going inside. Here is Nicole wearing the Hello Kitty AquaEars:
AquaEars for Children come in several different cartoon characters. Here are some of them:
These earplugs are adorable and my grandchildren love them. They work very well and so far they have helped prevent swimmer's ear. The AquaEars sell for $4 a container and are sold at CVS, Albertsons, KMart, Walgreens, WalMart and several more stores. You can also purchase them online from the Cirrus Health website for $5.99 a box.
