    Any swimmers here that can help me with some earplugs?

    My daughter is at her grandparents for the next week.  She has a nasty case of swimmers ear.  She's been put on a couple different antibiotics.  Today, they put her on Ciprodex.  I'm not sure that they're using great earplugs for her, as she's swimming every day.  I think they just use those spongey ones like ya get at rock concerts and stuff.

    Can anyone recommend a great earplug for her?  When the kids get back, we're going right back out camping, maybe for the next week.  Swimming is THE main activity at the resort we're going to, and I'd feel horrible if she had to sit out while all the other kids swim.  I'm looking at a couple, docs being the most recommended.  I'm just wondering if anyone has had anything like this, and has had something work particularly good for them.  Say something I can get at Rite Aid so I can have it quickly.

    kthx :D

    Get the wax kind that mold to your ear.

    My brother had ear problems, and the wax ones are probably by far the best.

    This is what I was going to say, except that I don't have a brother.

    Cool, thanks!  She can't swim, or rather, go underwater for 5 days.  I'm gonna go look for some of the wax ones, the drugstores should have em I'd think.
