Alright so I'm pretty sure this pain in my left ear is due to water entering from swimming. And it's the kind of pain you have when you have an ear infection.

This sucks. Anybody know some quick remedies for ear pain?

Tilt your head sideways for the water to come out


I've done that already it didn't help.

Im pretty sure a bug crawled in there, and you're basically going to die.


If it was just from water being in there....then....it'd be gone already?

the best trick for that is to return in the pool(where you probably got this) and tilt your head with the hurting ear up, so that the bubble can get out
I know what it is and that's what I always do

ps: tell me if it worked if you try it

if there's still water in there the best way to get it out is to press like the part of your hand below your thumb where it's sorta bigger than the rest of your hand against your ear really hard to create a vacuum, with your head tilted sideways and yank your hand away really hard. you might have to do it a few times. always works for me.

yeo my bro and sister both had this cause they swim a lot. its cause when you swim a lot, like at least once a day, all the water washes away the protective **** in your ear, liek earwax i guess, and then theres nothin to protect the ear so it hurts like a biatch. your just supposed to not go swimming and maybe get eardrops. itll go away

Just plain advil/tylenol or whatever should help until the water comes out, sometimes it'll just come out on it's own. But if the water is in your ear canal too long, you'll get...

Swimmer's Ear!

I've had it, prescriptions will get rid of it in no time, but your not supposed to swim again until it's cleared up.

Don't stick anything in it or get any water in it. Just see a doctor you probably need ear drops and some other meds. I just got over an ear infection that I had for a week and it blows just see a doctor and get meds. Or wait it out but that will take weeks.

i would go to the doctors. i just had an ear infection. they give you some amoxicillin and you will be fine.

if you don't want to go to the doctors, have someone blow cigarette smoke in it. somehow it works.

I've had those my whole life because of ear infections as a child. Just put a 1:1 ratio of alcohol and vinegar. i.e. 1 teaspoon of alchol 1 teaspoon of vinegar. mix it up and pour like three drops. let it sinkin and then lay on your side to drain it. works everytime!

Dude, I have that now, I was just searching for solutions. It's hurting like a badboy. Should I go the doctors or not?
