I tried everything as a kid - caps over my ears, wax in the ear, all the drops, etc. In the end, I was just vigilant about shaking my ears out after swimming. The wax worked, too, but I hated not being able to hear well.
Ditto the drying drops and wax ear plugs. After having 3 surgeries on my eardrum this past spring, I have to wear the wax ear plugs and use antibiotic drops anytime I'm in water that is not my shower. For the foreseeable future.

I got it frequently as a kid. And once in my thirties. I use hydrogen peroxide in my ear after swimming. Tilt head dump a cap full in. Listen for popping. Turn head let run out. Don't use good towels. Will bleach.
