Ear Care

We left a chilly Pretoria in the wee hours and were looking forward to a week at the coast, none more relieved than I to be leaving the work , school run and constant sinus problems behind me. As we reached Van Reenens pass and passed the half way mark I noticed that my ears “popped” and kind of “unblocked”.

The weather at the coast was a heavenly 25 degrees and we spent a glorious few days on the beach , but by the third day the wind had picked up and far be it for a little wind to spoil what precious few days we had left to enjoy our last few swims in the ocean.
By the evening my ears were not happy and I had awful pain. Probably a combination of sea water, wind and of course the fact that I had forgotten to protect my ears by bringing my medicated earplugs along.

“Oh well” I thought, it will “blow over” (no pun intended) but ignoring the problem was not really the solution.
To avoid an unpleasant trip back , something had to be done and I was just grateful that it was not one of the children with the problem as it is so much harder to cope with kids with sore ears.
Luckily I found a pharmacy in the area who stocked the Cirrus range of ear  products and got hold of some EarHurts and after inserting one of the plugs into the affected ear , there was huge relief by the next day!!
How grateful I am that I avoided a doctors’ visit and could enjoy the rest of my holiday.

I can certainly recommend using these products.

Hi Eleni, The lesson learnt here is to be prepared and know that ear pain usually strikes when you least expect it (like the evening or the middle of the night). I have learnt from experience to carry Earhurts with me everywhere.

Thanks for your email , Penny
