Dr. Mendy Maccabee treats swimmer’s ear in Hood River
Whether you are in the pool as a frequent or competitive swimmer, or in the river as a kiteboarder, windsurfer, kayaker, SUP paddler or foil junkie, “Swimmer’s Ear” can be a repetitive problem that can make your sport or recreation miserable. As a former lifeguard, whitewater kayaker, and kiteboarder, Dr. Mendy has great familiarity with the demands of your activity and treatments that will get you back in the water quickly and safely. Swimmer’s ear is called ‘acute otitis externa’, and occurs from water getting trapped in the external ear, outside the eardrum. Infection causes swelling, drainage, pain, and hearing loss.
