Earplugs for Surfer’s ear
Surfer’s ear is also known as exotoses or bony bulges in the ear canal. This condition is when the bone in your ear canal grows slowly over a long period of time. These bulges occur because the ear canal bone is exposed to excessive cold water and cold air. Surfers ear is a progressive condition, so it is best to have your ear examined by a professional if you are a regular swimmer, surfer or have any water sport (cold, wet and windy conditions) as your occupation or hobby. You may not realise you have exotoses until the condition has progressed causing constriction of your ear canal.
You may have the following symptoms if you have swimmer’s ear:
Difficulty drying your ears
Fluctuating hearing difficulty
