Natural Ways Get Water Out Of Your Ear

Water trapped in the ear and untreated can cause pain, inflammation, cyst formation and even hearing loss. You can treat by yourself fluid that is trapped in the outer ear. On the other hand, water trapped in the middle ear must be treated by a doctor in order to prevent further damage or infection.

Natural Ways to Get Water Out of your Ear:

  1. Create a Pressure Change

You can force the water to come out with pressure change using your hands. Also, chewing a gum will help you get the water out of your ear. Another approach is to cup your hand over your ear and pump inward while tilting the ear toward the ground. The change in pressure may release the water naturally. The best thing would be to find the perfect angle to let the water escape.

Here is how you can do it:

-Hold your breath by closing your mouth and pinching your nose with your fingers.

-While keeping your fingers on your nose, gently blow into your nose.

-If you hear a slight popping sound, it means that your tubes are open again.

-Valsalva maneuver is also one of the many natural ways to get rid of clogged ears.

  1. Use Rubbing Alcohol and Vinegar

Make a mixture of vinegar and rubbing alcohol in order to remove ear wax blockage which can trap the water inside your ear.

Take a bowl and add one teaspoon each of rubbing alcohol and vinegar. Then drop 2-3 drops of the mixture into your ear using an eye dropper. To incorporate the mixture, rub your ear gently with a warm washcloth.

After that, lay down or tilt your head with the affected ear facing down to help the water run out.

According to Dr. Robert Wilson, ENT, this mixture will help you clean your ears and prevent wax impaction if you flush the ear canal every few weeks.

  1. Hydrogen Peroxide for Blocked Ear

Among all other uses of hydrogen peroxide, is the use for clearing wax and other liquids out of the ear.

All you need to do is to mix one teaspoon each of 3% hydrogen peroxide and water. Use an eye dropper to place 2 or 3 drops of the mixture in the affected ear. This mixture will help you flush wax buildup which traps the water. After several minutes, lean your head and the water will probably run out.

  1. Olive Oil and Garlic

We all know the many health benefits olive oil possesses such as the ability of treating cancer, reduce the risk of diabetes, hypertension and Alzhemier’s.

Health Technol Assess published an article which confirmed that olive oil can be used to remove ear wax buildup.

You will need to heat some olive oil in a small bowl. It should be only slightly warm in order for you to drop a few drops of the oil into the ear. Wait for a several minutes before trying to get the water out.

You can also add garlic to the olive oil to help prevent an ear infection if the water is trapped inside, since garlic contains antiseptic properties.

Here is the recipe of garlic olive oil remedy:

  • Take 2 cloves of garlic and mash them
  • Add 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • Heat the mixture in a saucepan for a few seconds
  • Once it’s done, put the mixture in a dropper and place 2-3 drops of this mixture into the affected ear
  • After several minutes, tilt your head to the side or lie down and see if the water runs out.
  1. Change the Temperature of the Water

Room or ear temperature are more difficult to get out than warm water.

Take a washcloth soaked in warm water and hold it to the ear which will help you loosen the ear wax. Make sure to repeat this action several times while keeping the washcloth warm. After several attempts, try tilting your head or lying down to see if the water runs out.

Another way in which you can rid of the water in your ear, is steaming method. Sit in the bathroom with a hot shower running because it may loosen up the ear wax and allow the water to run out. Yet another natural technique which will help you with you problem is to pour hot water into a bowl, place a towel over your head, lean over the bowl and inhale the steam. After 5 to 10 minutes, tilt your head to see if the liquid comes out.

In addition, steam inhalation in combination with some essential oils is extremely method to treat ear infection.

  1. Salt Can Absorb the Water from your Ear

Aside all the other uses of salt, we can also use it to get rid of water in our ear.

To prepare this natural solution, you’ll need to heat a small amount of salt in the microwave and place it on a cotton ball. Tie the cotton ball tightly so that no salt comes off. Then place the cotton ball on the affected ear. This should help you to get rid of the water since salt has the ability to absorb water.

Be very careful not to put any salt directly in your ear.

A few Precautions

Do not use the abovementioned natural remedies if you suffer from an ear infection or ear pain.

Never clean the inside your ear since the inner parts are very delicate and you should be careful not to poke them with the dropper, cotton swab or other objects.

In conlusion, if these natural methods do not help you get rid of the water, consult with your ear, nose and throat doctor.
