Grommets and swimming

When a child suffers from glue ear ENT specialists usually recommend using grommets. These are small plastic tubes that are placed inside the ear canal; this allows air to pass in and out of the ear despite having symptoms of glue ear. The child may wear grommets even when swimming, although underwater swimming must be avoided. An ear plug may be worn to protect the grommet when swimming, showering or bathing.
