Kid did a cannonball and for the life of me I can't get this ear to clear. I am open to suggestions.

I've seen people use some sort of ear drops to get rid of swimmer's ear before. Not sure what it's called, but its supposed to work well.

You should be able to buy these drops called 'Swim-Ear' @ any drugstore. Works great.

With three boys and a pool we've had this come up several times over the years. You are right to want to get the water out before it infects. Swimmer's Ear hurts like ****.

You tried ClearEars earplugs?

They also make ear drops for swimmers that are basically alchohol. CVS, Walgreens, etc.



You can try this too:

If the water gets in your left ear, use your left foot to jump while pointing your left ear to the ground. Reverse for right ear.

Put a cap full of rubbing alcohol in your ear.

These. I would just use the isopropyl alcohol. The alcohol will evaporate and take the water with it.

Tampon...............



rubbing alcohol will dry it out but probably make your ear a little sore.

Don't use hydrogen peroxide. It breaks down into WATER. And don't use straight rubbing alcohol unless you want to cause some SERIOUS burning.

Use a swimmer's ear preparation that contains diluted alcohol and glycerin. It will dry it up very fast.

Point the clogged ear towards the ground, hit the portion of your head that now faces up with a good solid thump until water releases. Caution do not use hammers or any other striking instrument, also avoid contact with the temple area.

I freaked out the first time I did that (not due to swimmer's ear). That kind of reaction shouldn't take place inside someone's ear.

Peroxide, and you will most likely have to suffer a few days. I've tried holding my nose and doing the equilibrium balance deal... shit don't work if the water is in there deep.

turn your ear that is clogged to the ground then jump up and down until it comes out. Works all the time!

often the reason a person gets water stuck in their ear is ear wax build up. The peroxide addresses that.

I'd start by pulling the dick out of your ear. :D

Rubbing alcohol. Cotton ball. Squeeze just a little in there, you'll hear it hit the water, shake your head. Ballgame over.

I've never had rubbing alcohol hurt or burn. Except for when I didn't realize I had broken my eardrum. Son of a cock bitch that fucking hurt like everything unholy.

It may burn if you leave it in there awhile, but you can hear it hit the water, so I'm not sure why you'd need to.

Swimmers ear is balls.

I hear eating your own poop clears that stuff up right away. If it doesn't work this first time, you probably need to eat more.

Generally, swimmer's ear is a recurring condition caused by the shape of the external ear canal. Ear wax and swimmer's ear are two separate, unrelated conditions.

Are you sure it's water? It could be ear wax plugging you up. I've had that before where I get water in my ear, so then I'm kinda digging in there with my finger a little bit and wind up pushing wax down in there which completely plugs it up. Then I end up thinking it's water the whole time and of course none of the remedies to remove water work because that's not the actual problem.

If it is ear wax there are removal kits at the pharmacy, but I've always preferred going to the ear doc. They have this vacuum that will literally suck the wax out of your ear and you'll feel like a new person.

Just figured I'd throw that out there.

I had a serous swimmers ear problem last summer when I went swimming.... a couple nights later the whole left side of my face swelled up. I couldn't sleep, eat(jaw swelled up), or hear out of that ear at all. Horrible.

swimmer's ear is a bacterial infection of the ear, not simply water in the ear. nothing in the OP suggest swimmer's ear.
