How can I get this fluid out of my ear??? HELP!!!!?
My allergies were really acting up last week. My eyes were swollen, itchy, watery. My head was sooo stopped up and a major headache, sneezing, and last but not least nasal congestion. Now for the past 2 days my left ear is sooo stopped up. I can feel fluid in it when I tilt my head. I've tried peroxide, alcohol, sweet oil drops and it is not helping at all, infact may be making it worse. I can hardly hear out of this ear, and when I talk it soulds like I'm in the bottom of a barrel...Please help, it's driving me insane!!
Consult a doctor. How'd it get there anyways?!? That's WEIRD!!!
I'd stop putting anything into your ear for sure. Simple and silly but have you tried laying with that ear down for an extended period of time? That is how I generally get water out of my daughters ears...from swimming.
u need to drain ur ear. take a hot shower and the steam will start to break it up. right after u get out lay on a heating pad that u would use for sore muscles. cover the heating pad with hand towel so if it does start to drain the first time it woun't be all over everything. if it does not work the first time but u can hear popping and cracking noises then its working and try again in a about 2 hours. its a work in progress but it will eventually drain out. when it finally does clean carefully with a q-tip. repeat till u feel better. if it worsens u might have to go to the doc's to get special ear drops. wish u well.
go to the doctor and get some ear drops
You need to see a doctor. Could be a bad ear infection. You may need an antibiotic. I would also take some Mucinex and drink plenty of water. Also, NEVER TAKE HEARING LOSS LIGHTLY! If you can't hear or are hearing things strangely out of your ear, you may have a sensory-neural hearing loss. In this case, time is precious. To increase chances of your hearing return, you need to be treated with Prednisone (steroid) right away. The best advice is to see an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist) just to be safe. Most physicians are trained for general medicine. Since you are having a specific problem with your ear, your best care will come from the specialist. I know because I lost hearing in my left ear and have regained a portion of it at this point. I may have gotten more if any of the numerous physicians and ER doc's had listened to me when I said I couldn't hear out of my ear. I didn't get the medicine until much later than the critical window of opportunity. When this happened to me, I was also suffering from severe allergy problems. Best of luck to you!
