Default Swimmers ear

I just started swimming three weeks ago. I am 41 and never did before because I couldn't breathe under water. I would sputter and cough and never had a lesson because I just thought I could never learn to breathe properly. But I was just diagnosed with fibromyalgia and I'm a personal trainer so this was devastating. I am determined to remain physical. Now I love swimming. In three weeks I've gotten to the point I can do twenty laps in Olympic size pool in twenty minutes. Idk if that is is pathetic or not but I don't care, I am thrilled and really proud of myself. Problem: I keep getting really painful swimmers ear. I tried two different Mack's ear plugs, the screw ones and the silicone ones that you form into ball and fit into ear. I have tried after swim drying ear drops
And drying ears with towel and then blow drier. Any other ideas? I can't give up
Swimming but the pain is really bad.
