Fresh Water Ear Problems

I liked dutch springs, but had the worse ear infections of my life about 2 days after I left.... Just a warning to everyone be careful of swimmers ear - let them DRY!

lay on your side, put 5 drops in each ear, leave in for 5 minutes.

we rinse right after every time we get out of the water. Cap full in your ear for 30 seconds or so, dump and repeat on other ear. I will do it one last time after we have cleaned the boat off or later that night to make sure I got everything.

Does your doctor think this is specific to Dutch Springs? Is there something lurking in the water we should know about?

After doing fresh-water water analysis for a job, drops go in after every dive. Quarries are the worst due to the size of the body of water (smaller), relatively warm water tempature, lack of current, and little water change in areas close to shore.

I don't think it's specific to DS, just to more enclosed bodies of water. I know we were advised to use the ear solution after diving the cenotes in Mexico too due to a lot of people getting ear infections.

I think it had to do with hood I wore too, but it could just be me being paranoid. I got some antibiotics from the DR for each time I dive. Anyone get ear infections in salt water too?
