SwimSeal Makes a Splash
Swimming is seen by the vast majority of parents as an essential life skill - however many children suffer with water-related ear problems which can put them off swimming for life. SwimSeal is a new product that prevents these ear problems and keeps children splashing around and enjoying the water.
Two or three drops of SwimSeal in each ear works with the body's natural ear wax to create a barrier, which prevents water getting into the ear canal where infections are most common. Often referred to as Swimmer's ear, the condition is an itchy, painful, outer-ear infection that can occur when bacteria in swimming water get through breaks in the skin.
SwimSeal has been developed by leading ENT surgeons to prevent painful ears caused by exposure to water. It is suitable for all ages and retails at £7.99 from www.swimseal.com and independent pharmacies. Each plastic bottle contains approximately 100 applications.
SwimSeal contains no alcohol and is made up of a unique formulation that includes tea tree oil. It leaves the ear naturally and should be reapplied every couple of hours.
SwimSeal is already available in Australia and South Africa where it has enjoyed a terrific response from parents and the swimming communities.
Helen Downing, mum, said: "I bought these drops for my 10 yr old daughter, since due to ear infections I had to pull her out of swimming lessons. I tried ear plugs & a band that went over her head & ears, but the water always found a way in. We were gutted since she loved the water. Then about a year later she started swimming with the school, so I did some research & found these ear drops. I was worried about her getting another ear infection but these drops really work and she has been swimming about 8 times & no ear infections :). So happy, thank you for a great product."
Ryk Neethling, Olympic swimming gold medallist, said: "I won't go into the water without SwimSeal."
Dr Simon Baer, ENT surgeon, said: "Ear infections are common especially in younger people during the summer months due to water exposure. I would recommend SwimSeal ear drops in order to prevent trapped water and ear infections in this age group."
