Australians enjoy some of the world’s best beaches and swimming culture, so it is no surprise that 1 in 7 of us are regular swimmers. With such a high prevalence of water activity, Otitis Externa (swimmer’s ear) is a frequently occurring problem.
When it comes to ear infections and pain caused by retained water in the ear, SwimSeal Protective Ear Drops are the only true preventative solution.
This unique solution creates a waterproof coating in the ear canal that expels water from the ear, preventing common water related ear problems.
In addition, SwimSeal Protective Ear Drops contain Australian Tea Tree oil that acts as a natural anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory agent. Even better, it contains NO ALCOHOL which stings and is known to cause unnecessary irritation of the delicate lining of the ear canal which can lead to pain and infection.
The drops do not impact hearing or balance, so throw away the ear plugs (and Blu Tack!). With hearing intact, it’s easy to hear what’s going on around you. The drops naturally migrate out of the ear over 2-3 hours, so once they are in, you don’t need to worry about them.
The formulation of the drops is patented. SwimSeal was developed by Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) medical specialists and is approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia, so it is very safe to use. In fact, all ages above 6 months can use and benefit from SwimSeal.
Each 7.5ml bottle contains 2% Australian Tea Tree Oil and 98% Polydimethylsiloxane (water repellent).
Use prior to water exposure. Shake well before use. Pull the outer ear gently upwards and backwards to straighten the ear canal. Put 2-3 drops into each ear and gently massage the tragus (outer skin) to ensure the canal is coated. Repeat after 2 hours’ exposure to water.
Who can use SwimSeal?
SwimSeal can be used for people of all ages to prevent water-related ear problems and is safe to use for children from 6 months of age. Whether you are actively involved in water sports or simply enjoy splashing around every now and then, SwimSeal is the ideal product to use. If you have grommets, a perforated eardrum, are pregnant or lactating, SwimSeal ear drops should not be used.
Avoid if you are allergic to any of the ingredients, have a perforated eardrum, infection or other problems in the ear canal such as grommets.
Warnings and Precautions:
Use only in the ear canal. Do not use in the eyes, nose or mouth or directly after ear surgery. Stop using and seek medical advice if there is irritation or hypersensitivity of the ear. Do not use to treat ear infections. In case of doubt, seek advice from your doctor before using the product.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding:
It is recommended not to use the product if pregnant or lactating as it has not been tested for use with those conditions.
