Whether you’re in the swimming pool, in the lake or in the sea, swimming is fun! But amateur splashers or competitive swimmers often get water in their ears from swimming. This is why we developed OHROPAX Silicon Aqua – the special earplug for swimming. We’re all familiar with this: you’ve got water in your ear, which can be accompanied by a cracking sensation, annoying pressure or a numb feeling. This is very unpleasant. Getting water in your ears can also lead to a very annoying and painful inflammation of the external auditory canal. This is caused by germs that get into the ear along with water from swimming in the sea or lake, for example. The conditions in the humid, warm environment of the narrow auditory canal are very good for fungi and bacteria. This quickly leads to pain and/or itching and can also result in inflammation of the middle ear in a worst-case scenario. ‘Swimmer’s ear’ (medical term: otitis externa) should be taken seriously and needs to be treated by a doctor. OHROPAX Silicon Aqua is therefore recommended to keep water out of the auditory canal and for swimming with peace of mind. The light-blue silicone earplugs are waterproof and are very easily malleable. The skin-friendly silicone adapts to every ear and keeps them dry. The tight sealing also keeps disruptive noise and wind out of the ear.
Soften the plug by vigorous kneading, form it into a ball.
No elongated shape! Use entire earplug – do not split!
Place the ball in front of the opening of the ear canal and seal it with gentle pressure.
Do not insert into the ear canal.
