Surfers ear which is also known as exostosis is a condition where the ear canal is narrowed by bone which slowly grows over time. The phenomena is the human bodys protective response to exposure to cold water and cold air. The bone grows in lumps, which in turn form bulges which can trap water. Consequently, this can be painful, cause recurring ear infections and worst of all result in significant hearing loss! However there are two remedies. One involves some nasty surgery after the condition is diagnosed. The other is preventative to stop the condition ever happening use good quality surfers ear plugs. The latter option is certainly a no-brainer and its where Northcore surfers ear plug protection can help.
