How To Get Water Out Of Your Ears

As amazing as swimming and pouring water on the head can be, so can it also lead to great pains if the person is not careful enough. While swimming, water might flow into the openings in the body such as the mouth, the ears, and even the eyes.

However, due to some swimming techniques the flow of water into the aforementioned parts of the body except the ears can be duly controlled.

When water moves into the ears without the immediate removal of such fluid, it might lead to an infection of the ear known as “swimmer’s ear” which can cause serious damage to the ear.

Another side-effect is some kind of partial deafness in which the person will be unable to hear properly for sometimes.

 Shake your head: You can shake your head for about five minutes to remove the water in your ears. Firstly, bend the head to one side of the ear (towards your shoulder) and then bend it towards the other side; increase the pace of oscillation thereby shaking your head in the process. This way the water should come out of your ear especially when you bend it for sometimes before shaking it.

 Make use of ear-drops: You can also apply ear-drop (I recommend alcohol-based ear-drops) to dry the water in your ear. However, you should seek medical advise before applying the ear-drop if you are suffering from any other ear infections such as external auditory infections and perforated eardrum.

 Make use of a cotton wool: You can also consider inserting a cotton wool in the ears and bend it side-way to absorb the moisture with the cotton wool. You should be very careful and place the cotton wool at a very accessible distance where you can remove it easily. Ensure the cotton wool is clean and had not been used before.
