Splish-Splash: No More Unnecessary Visits to the doctor's for the Swimmer's Ear
Swimmer's ear, or otitis externa, is an infection in the external ear canal. Its often brought on by water that remains in your ear after splash time. Young children may not be able to clearly communicate any pain or discomfort they are feeling in their ear.
With Remmie's help, parents can communicate with doctors through our telemedicine connections with images and videos captured by the Remmie monitor. Remmie not only helps doctors visualize ear problems in the comfort of your homes, but can also save your time from unnecessary doctor's visits, especially in the COVID-19 pandemic.
