SnugsAqua tips help prevent ear infections and problems such as swimmer and surfer’s ear. As they are made from your physical ear impressions, they provide a perfect canal seal, which prevents water getting into and damaging your ears.
If you are continuously exposing your ears to cold water, then your ears will naturally start to protect themselves and ‘close up’; the bone of the ear canal develops multiple bony growths called exostoses. Over time this will develop to partial or complete blockage of the ear canal, causing hearing loss and also makes your ears more susceptible to ear infection. This is called surfers ear; if you are a surfer or do other watersports, then it is important to use earplugs to protect your ears and their long-term health.
