Getting water out of your ear is very easy in most cases but there are some very important safety factors that you should be aware of before putting anything into your ear. Water and moisture can enter your ear in a number of ways including pool/spa
use, swimming, diving, bathing, and even car washing.
First Step To Removing Water From Ear
Before putting anything into your ear try simply tilting you head to the side for around 30 seconds. This will normally allow any water or liquid to leave your ear easily. If the liquid does not come out of your ear there could be a number of other problems.
Ruptured Eardrum May Feel Like Water
One problem may be that your ear drum is ruptured. I have ruptured ear drums while diving and hitting the water at various angles. This will feel and sound like there is water in your ear but really it just seems this way because the ear has been ripped. I made the mistake of putting a solution for swimmers ear into
my ear. This cause an extreme amount of pain and a seizure. For this reason do not put anything in your ear that may cause additional pain or discomfort. Instead, seek additional help from a trusted medical professional who can look at your inner ear and see the concern.
Eax Wax Buildup
Wax buildup is common in many ears. It does not typically happen to most people more than once a year but if the wax is not removed it can trap water or seem like a liquid in your ear that moves around. You can remove earwax buildup in a number of ways and I have written more about this on this site here:
Divers Solution for Water In Ear
Many divers also use a solution of 1/2 50% Isopropyl alcohol and 1/2 distilled water solution. Just put a few drops in your ear and it should try out in less than a day. Some divers repeat this after getting out of the water but most divers that I am aware of typically do not need to use any solution to clear the water from their ears. Many of them do hold their nose and blow to relieve pressure.
