  • If you go to the doc ask about auralgan. Most docs forego pain relief and go with antibiotics which take days.

  • Given just the facts at hand, I would say yes either ear infection or swimmer ear (you can get ear plugs to help prevent if this become common after each swim). Some kids pull at their ears for teething or just for fun. But if it's only since the pool, I think your right.
