External Ear Infections - Otitis Externa - What it is

The ear is divided into three parts: the outer ear (the pinna and external ear canal), middle ear (behind the ear drum) and inner ear (cochlea). Infections of the outer and middle ear are much more common than inner ear infections.

External Ear Infections: Otitis Externa

An infection affecting the external ear canal is called otitis externa, commonly known as ‘swimmer’s ear’. Anyone can get otitis externa.
