Default Help with swimmer's ear? [:

Well, it's summer again, and I'm big on swimming. So I went to the pool today and when I got out I had water in my ear and I couldn't get it out. And every time I move my head I can feel/hear it in there. And no matter how much poking or prodding I do, I can't get it out. This has happened to me before and it ended up turning into swimmer's ear, which was not fun. So I was just wondering if anyone knows a safe way to fix this before it gets worse? (: Thanks in advance.

Ugh- I don't like it when I get water in my ears.

You can sleep on the ear that has the water on it. In the morning it should be out.

I heard if you put water in a dropper and put some water in the affected ear, wait a couple seconds, then flip your head rapidly so the water will fall out. Sounds a bit odd though.

If you put a hair dryer on the side of your head that is affected, but not too close or else it will hurt more than help, that should help the water dry up. Make sure the hair dryer is on low.


Good luck!

Ugh, I hate that, too. >_<

Try jumping up and down while your head [the ear with the water is facing down] is titled to the side or sleep on that side.

That usually helps me, good luck.

Esh, I remember getting swimmer's ear when I was in the 1st grade. Not fun at all.

I can't remember much fun that experience, but one of my friends told me recently that this happened to her and she stuck a stick thingy into her ear and the water came streaming out O.o

I don't think that's great for your ear, but if you're in desperation, it's an option.

The only *safe like* option I can give you has been said, and it would be to sleep with your water logged ear down, the water might come out.

I had swimmers ears, made worse because my eardrum was almost gone (it's been repaired). My doctor gave me Suda--- to help drain my ears.
