A quick healing of swimmer’s ear

After a long day at school, there’s nothing I like better than being in the pool. I swim about three times a week, and my favorite strokes are freestyle and butterfly. I love swimming because it makes me feel so free—like I am flying. 

A few years ago, though, I got an ear infection called swimmer’s ear. At first, I tried to will my way through the pain. During the practice in which my ear began to hurt intensely, I did my best to ignore the problem and swim through it. Obviously, that didn’t work, and I felt frustrated. I didn’t want to have to miss practices or take any time off from swimming. 

The pain was completely gone.
