>From your neighborhood pharmacist...Use 1/2 rubbing alcohol and 1/2 white
vinegar for prevention of swimmer's ear. The alcohol absorbs and dehydrates
the ear and the vinegar reacidifies the ear canal to make it an inhospitable
environment for "bugs." Flood the ear with this and let it dry naturally.
Works great and is inexpensive. $2.00 a quart v. $4.00 and ounce for
proprietary products that are essentially the same thing. Shame on me...I'll
be kicked out of the profession for giving this one away!
