Extreme swimmer’s ear?

Without fail, every time I swim I get an ear infection. It doesn’t matter if it’s a well maintained pool, a clean bath or a lake. If my head goes underwater once both ears will hurt for days to weeks, I use ear drops like they keep me alive in the summer. I don’t know how I can prevent this while still going in water or why it even happens

    There’s ear plugs you can buy that are made to be used while swimming, have you tried using something like that?

      I don’t think it has anything to do with it though. My immune system does suck (I get sick every 2-3 weeks if I’m in public semi often) but who knows. Everything just suggests I have an extremely narrow ear canal like a kid, but even then.. an infection every time
