I know it may seem strange that i don't know what it is, but what is swimmers ear?

I read a question about it recently, and it struck my interest.

Usually its when an irritant from the water gets trapped in the ear because of water and/or wax and the ear gets irritated or even infected.

Its a infection in the ear. I had swimmers ear recently and my ear swelled up and greenish goopy stuff came out and every morning crusty stuff was in my ear.

It usually happens when you go too deep in the water too often. I get it almost every summer. It sucks!
