There are several reasons that you can have excess fluid in your ear that you need to get rid of. This happens most commonly to people who spend a lot of time in water like swimmers and surfers – water in their ears kind of become something that goes with the job, and everyone who has ever ended up with water in their ears by accident will know how uncomfortable and even painful it can be when it happens to you: Luckily there are a couple of tricks that have been tried by professional swimmers and other water-lovers for years – all of which will manage to get rid of the water trapped in your ears. If you suspect that you have an ear infection instead, then you should go through this list with a lot of caution – the fluid in your ears is not water and care has to be taken so that infection will not spread. Here are 10 ways to get rid of fluid in your ears:
1. Wait it Out…Sometimes
Sometimes if you have just a little bit of fluid trapped in your ear then all you have to do is wait it out and it will go away by itself: This is most likely to be true if you have just gone swimming or taken a shower and a little bit of water has trapped itself in the ear canal.
You will immediately notice that you have gone deaf in one or two ears, and you might experience a little bit of pressure in the ear that goes along with it at the same time. Your best option, in this case, is just to wait it out until it goes away – the water will eventually move out of the ear canal by itself and you won’t have to do much to make it happen. If the feeling still persists for several hours then you should move on to the rest of this list.
