It is possible to lose your hearing from swimmers ear if your swimmers ear isn't treated in a prompt time frame.

But as long as you get the swimmers ear treated promptly after getting the swimmers ear then swimmers ear is usually not that serious and you have a less chance of losing your hearing from the swimmers ear.

It is normal though to have muffled hearing "temporary hearing loss" after being treated for the swimmers ear but you should regain your hearing back within a few days to a week after being treated for the swimmers ear.
