I think I have swimmers ear (water trapped in my ear) its not causing me any pain but is really annoying. What will remove the water?

See below.: You can use an over-the-counter product called Swim-ear or Auri-dry. These are drops that you put in your ear and should help to dry out the water. If they cause pain, or this feeling continues, you should see your doctor to make sure that water is the cause. Swimmer's ear is when the water causes an infection of the skin of the ear canal. Please see your doctor if this does not help. ...Read more

My ear feels like there is water in it but it only started this afternoon and I haven't been anywhere near a shower.

Plugged ear: The fluid may be in your middle ear and accumulated because your eustachian tube is plugged up, and has nothing to do with being around water of getting water in the external canal. With middle ear fluid, you get that feeling of 'plugged up'. Pop your ears frequently, chew gum, yawn - the same things you do on a plane if ears plug. If pain or drainage develop, see doctor. ...Read more

It feels like there's water in my ear, but there isn't? Why is this?

Check if Wax Buildup: I agree with Dr. Gorup. Another thought is that wax-buildups can cause you to hear abnormal sensations (whooshing sound, hearing your pulse in that ear, crackles). This is especially likely if you use Q-tips, earplugs, ear buds, etc. Seeing your primary care doctor for an examine, will determine if wax is the cause If the ear exam is normal, and you have no evidence of a sinus infection, see ENT ...Read more

If: If you feel like you have decreased hearing in one ear, and are dizzy, you should see your doctor soon. If you hum, and can hear it louder in the ear that feels plugged, that's good, and so long as your ear doesn't hurt, and the dizziness is mild, it can probably wait. If it's louder in the ear that does not feel plugged, you should see an ear doctor right away. If your vertigo is significant, you should go to the doctor today. ...Read more

Can you tell me how I could drain the water out of my ear?

Can you tell me how I could drain the water out of my ear?

Fluid in ear: Fluid in the ear can be in either the ear canal or the middle ear. I am guessing that the fluid you mean is in the middle ear, which won't just come out like it would if it was in the canal. Best way to do that is to pinch your nose and blow, so as to "pop" the ear. This is called a Valsalva maneuver. If you can't do that, you may need an ENT to perform a procedure like an ear tube. ...Read more
