Many kids have had an ear infection known as external
otitis. It is often called swimmer's ear, but you don't have to be a swimmer to
get it. The ear is divided into
three parts: the outer, middle, and inner ear. When the ear canal, which is part of
the outer ear, gets infected, you have external otitis. It can make your ear hurt,
especially when you touch it.
