Ear Health

  • The ear is divided into three separate parts: the inner, middle, and outer ear.
  • The inner ear contains the balance organs and the nerves that are vital to hearing.
    The middle ear contains the bones that link the eardrum to the inner ear.
    The outer ear is simply the earlobe and a short tube leading to the eardrum. The eardrum separates the middle and outer ears.
    Infection of the inner ear is called labyrinthitis, which can be serious. Infection of the middle ear is called otitis media. It can cause temporary hearing loss and can progress to the inner ear if ignored. Infection of the outer ear is called otitis externa or swimmer's ear. It's rarely serious.
  • All forms of ear infection are most common in children, but adults are more susceptible to swimmer's ear than they are to middle or inner ear infections. While children under 6 account for most cases of otitis media, older children tend to get swimmer's ear.
  • There are no reliable statistics on how common swimmer's ear is, because it's usually just a passing earache that is often not reported to the family doctor. It's known, however, to be most common in summertime, largely because that's when children are most likely to swim.
