i got my first case of otitus externa or more commenly known as swimmers ear about 7 years ago. i was treated with the run of the mill ear drops, polmyoxin sulfate or something to that effect and they cleared up soon after starting the drops. about 6 months later it was back again and i repeated the treatment, it again worked. soon enough though it was back and that type of drop was no longer working, it seemed to make it worse. my docter recomended that i try a cipro brand not covered by my insurance, cipro hc otic, and this worked well. the infection just kept coming back, i would repeat the treatment with succsess, this went on for years. this last year the infections started getting more serious, enlarged lymph nodes, fever, major swelling of my ears and now my eyes are getting infected along with them. i have gone through 5 rounds of leviquin in the last year just to fight the ear related head infection. now the drops no longer work and i'm still battlling these horrible infections. i do all i can do to keep my ears dry and clean but it just keeps coming back. now my ears ring all the time and i am having slight hearing loss, my docters never have any new info and i am getting frusterated and scared. by the way i am 30 years old, can anyone relate with this?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
