Swimmer’s ear is inflammation of the external ear canal and occurs when water gets in the ear during swimming or bathing and doesn’t drain properly.  Children/teens/young adults will complain with itching or ear pain.  To help avoid them, your young­ster should place drops in the ears after swimming—either a 70 percent alcohol solu­tion or a mixture of one-half alcohol, one-half white vinegar. Also, dry the ears with a towel immediately after swimming or bathing.  For proper diagnosis see your healthcare provider to ensure your child doesn’t have an ear infection.
