Although the outdoor swimming season in Canada has come to a close, a lot of us are still swimming at the indoor pools. I recently had swimmers ear so thought this post would be appropriate.
Here are four of the most used remedies for swimmers ear. Please remember that is is always best to seek the advice of a licensed Homeopath for remedy selection, potency and frequency of dose.
