How to Remove Water from Ears
« on: October 23, 2011, 10:19:19 AM »
It is annoying and sometimes painful to get water in your ears, and if left there, it can cause ear infections. Try these simple ideas to get the water out of your ears.

Method 1:
Typical Method
Make sure that there is water in your ears.This can easily be checked by slightly tapping your temple with your wrist. You will feel very uneasy if water is stagnant in your ear. Then try any of the following methods.

# Create an ear drying solution. A good solution is a 50:50 mixture of 5% acetic acid (household vinegar) and isopropyl alcohol (95% is best due to less water in the mixture). The acid in this mixture acts to break down the cerumen (earwax) that may be holding in some water in the ear canal, while the alcohol dries fast and takes the water with it.
# An alternate method is to stand on one foot and tilt your head so the offending ear faces the ground. Hop on one foot until the water drains out.
# Another method is to lie down on your side with the clogged ear facing down. Gravity may cause the ear to drain naturally.
# Place your finger in your ear and make a vacuum with your finger by pushing and pulling rapidly. In a moment the water should come out of your ear very quickly.
# Pretend you are gnawing on some food. Tilt your head to the side that doesn't have water in it and then quickly tilt your head to the other side.
# Face affected ear down and then with your palm push in and out until water begins to come out.
# Contact a doctor if none of the above work, you could have an ear infection. Though ear infections are most common in children.

Method 2:
Pawan Suri Method

The Pawan Suri method of removing water from the ear: Tilt your head to the side with the affected ear facing up. Now drip a small amount (5-10 drops) of water into the affected ear (from a cup or the palm of your hand). As the water enters your ear canal, you will feel a "give" as it breaks through the "air-lock" that is trapping the water. Now tilt the head the other way and let all the water drip out....you ear is now clear.

Method 3:
Product Method

There is a product at most drugstores called "swim-ear". You put a few drops in the affected ear and wait until it fills the ear up. Then get a kleenex or cotton ball. Put it in the ear and tilt to the none affected ear. It all will drain out. IT is amazing!

We can put a small cotton into the ears while taking bath specially for the kids.

Thanks for sharing this useful post. I often faced the problem when I took bath in the pond or river.
In future, it will help me to handle the problem with care.
