Hi, Anju,
Thanks for query.
Ear infection is common in regular swimmers due to infection in the water.
At present for pain you can give can give paractamol or brufen syrup or tablet or combination of both.
He may require antibiotic treatment after consulting your doctor if he thinks it is needed.
You can use ear plugs regularly to prevent water going inside.
Ok and bye.
