Ear plugs - necessary?
Upon leaving the pool today, an older lady who had been watching me from one of the loungers asked me if I wore anything in my ears in the pool. I said, no, I have never done. She recommended that I do, as she had been forced to quit swimming due to ear problems.
Is this common? Do a lot of swimmers wear ear plugs? It's got me wondering now. I've never had any problems with my ears after swimming.
