    this is correct. ie. you should make small batches on a regular basis. I was told, always make a new batch every month.

    many thanks in anticipation
    Hi,

    Yes, the advice you got was good. My non-medical understanding is that post-diving the ear become dry, cracks, and the crack gets infected. Preventing the dryness, by use of the lubrication, is the key.

    I've used 2 products and they work well - one is a little bizzare, but works really good and is readily available - here are the links:

    Earol

    Nuage Shaving Oil

    Cheers
    Matt.

    - clean with drinking water
    - often the vinegar/alcohol/glycerine mixes are ok
    - if it does not help we use panotile (zambon) - this works great. do not use directly before diving.
