I have taken Shelby swimming numerous times as well as swimming lessons at around 4 months. Well last weekend while we were camping, I took her to the pool and she must have gotten water in her ear. Just the right ear. I have never seen anything like it! The pus and mucus that was in there, was disgusting. I cant even describe it. Then it started to get bloody. Big bloody boogers stuck in her ear. Its really sticky too. YUCK. I took her to the doctors and its what they call an exterior ear infection or swimmers ear. Take some Tylenol for the pain and some ear drops. I thought i would share that even though its gross, if you ever see that, you will know what it is.
