Water in the ears is a very common ailment, especially when bathing in the pool, on the beach, or in the hot tub. It has not happened to you that you have ever bathed in a pool and water gets into your ears and you have the uncomfortable feeling of not hearing well while feeling a constant, really overwhelming ringing in your ears. In addition to how annoying it becomes to remove the water from your ear.
Because of this, thousands of tricks and strategies have been invented that can help you solve this problem.
It is very important to know that it is convenient to go to the doctor to assess what might happen if the water does not come out easily and is accompanied by other symptoms. Among these symptoms we find: headache, nausea and dizziness
When water enters the ear, we often get scared and hit the head on the opposite side where we feel that it is full of water. While this technique may work, a more practical option is to place the palm of your hand over the affected ear and apply pressure to create a kind of vacuum that helps the water run down the ear canal.
When the water is very deep, jump your head to the side. This ensures that the pressure exerted by the jump expels the water.
Lie on your side on the bed
All you have to do is lie on the affected ear and let gravity work by itself. Tilt your head a little so that it is parallel to the bed so that the ear canal is straight and the water drains on its own.
It is advisable to turn it on at the lowest power and place it at a safe distance to avoid burns and let it sit for a few minutes. In this way, the water entering the ear evaporates.
Hydrogen peroxide: put a few drops of hydrogen peroxide in the affected ear and let it rest for 5 minutes. Then turn your head and let all the water drain out.
Vinegar and alcohol: mix the alcohol and vinegar, pour a few drops over your ear, let it rest for 5 minutes, then turn your head for the water to come out. It helps the water sink much more easily and the residue that remains in it evaporates. If you want to know more tricks on how to remove water from ears? Enter the next video
