Mack’s® Ear Plugs from McKeon Products, Inc. Helping Prevent Swimmers Ear Since 1962



Macks Ear Plugs Swimmers Ear WARREN – May 30, 2014 - As the #1 doctor recommended brand to protect hearing and help prevent swimmer’s ear, Mack’s® Pillow Soft® and Kid’s Size silicone ear plugs have saved over 60 million ears from swimmer’s ear!

Swimmer’s ear, or otitis externa, is an infection in the outer ear canal, which runs from the eardrum to the outer ear and can be very painful. It is primarily caused by excess moisture remaining in the ear after swimming, which creates an environment that encourages bacterial growth resulting in pain and discomfort. Treatment such as prescription antibiotic eardrops may clear up the infection; however, if ears are not kept dry, swimmer’s ear and the pain and discomfort associated with it are likely to reoccur. There is a simple solution to help prevent swimmer’s ear: Mack’s® Earplugs.

There are a number of Mack’s® earplug products available to help prevent swimmer’s ear. Mack’s® moldable silicone earplugs create a watertight seal, are very comfortable to wear, and are available in adult or kid’s sizes. Mack’s® Kid’s Size silicone earplugs are larger and safer than other kid’s size earplugs and their bright orange color is fun for kids and easy for parents to see, making them a necessity at the beach or pool. Mack’s® also offers their AquaBlock® earplug as another option to help prevent swimmer’s ear. These pre-molded flanged earplugs are constructed of silicone and designed for soft, super comfortable, waterproof protection. Mack’s® Dry-n-Clear Ear Drying Aid also helps relieve the discomfort of water-clogged ears from swimming. It is formulated with a unique moisturizing agent that helps dry excess water while conditioning the lining of the ear canal. Let Mack’s® help make your summer more enjoyable!
