Swimmer’s ear is the worst pain ever. Feels like someone is stabbing you with a knife in your ear/jaw area. I used a heating pad with it barely touching the area and Tylenol and ibuprofen. The medicines didn’t last very long for the pain. I took antibiotic drops and began feeling better around the 4th day of treatment. Never again with the Q-tips!
