For your information, there are many factors that can contribute to the ear infection. They are:
You may use the cotton wipes to wipe the outer part of your ear after bath to make sure that your ear are always dry and reducing the risk of the infection from getting worse. You need to avoid from frequent usage of cotton buds into your ear as it is one of the factor of getting an ear infection.
Therefore, I advise you to refer to a doctor for a proper treatment. You can also have an online consultation with our doctors for more information and further treatments.
