Hi. I’m looking for some advice about swimmer’s ear from fellow swimmers, not from a website or a non-swimmer. I have my first [mild] infection, am on antibiotic ear drops, and was advised by the nurse not to swim for a week. YIKES!!!!! I was so looking forward to the Jetty Drills tomorrow. Please share your experience. Do I really need to stay out of the water for a week? Will sterile ear plugs and a tight cap keep the water out? Thanks.
