Can I Use A Nose Plunger To Unclog My Ear
My ear is blocked (pressure and lost hearing) after using the neil med sinus rinse. I tried yawning to pop it and a q-tip. How can I unblock my ear?
Wax Impaction: You probably moistened a near complete wax impaction and made the blockage complete. This may require an ENT doctor to fix but you can try dissolving the wax. Debrox and Cerumenex are good at this. I suggest repeat usage several times a day until the wax dissolves. If it doesn't after a day or two time to see the doctor. Seeing a ENT rather than your pcp is recommended. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can I use debris ear wax removal. After i drain the ear drop out do I use a q tip or what to clean the wax out?
Is it safe to use a cotton swab to gently clean the gunk out of my ear? I have otitis externa and am using the ear drops
"No!" (well, maybe): The usual advice for cleaning ears is "nothing smaller than your elbow" goes in your ears. Eg; NO Q-tips, Bic pen tops, chop sticks, etc. However, you probably have some drainage so gently cleaning the OUTSIDE of your ear would be fine, but I would avoid putting anything in the ear canal. Doing so, while tempting, usually just makes things worse by jamming the canal full of wax. ...Read more

After using a q~tip to clean my ear, i woke up the next day with my ear bleeding and plugged. Same as when water is in ear. How do I unplug ear?
Doctor: Given the bleeding, you really need to have a medical professional look into the ear with the appropriate equipment. You could have a perforated ear drum, which can create the sensations you're describing. It's actually best not to put anything in your ear, as it's very easy to tear your eardrum on accident! ...Read more
My left ear is clogged. Dealing with sinus/chest infection. Can I use peroxide to delight? What can I use so i can hear out of it again?!
I suggest: that your problem may be water and WAX (often its the wax which "sticks" to the water making it difficult to relieve the pressure. Suggest an OTC wax remover (example only not recommendation) such as MURINE EAR SYSTEM. Ask your phrmacist and also purchase a large ear syringe (I find the small ones provided with the ear wax remover are too small to be effective) Hope this helps! DrZ ...Read more
Can I use saline solution on top of peroxide to clean infected ear from piercing? Also is it ok if i accidently squirted saline solution inside ear?
Many ways: The eustachian tube connects the very back of your nose to the middle ear. This tube is generally collapsed shut at rest and must be opened to allow the pressure to equalize in the ear. The tensor tympani muscle passes around the opening of this tube and when contracted helps to keep it open. You can do this by swallowing, yawning, chewing gum, or attempting to blow out your nose while swallowi. ...Read more

I used a neti pot to clear my sinuses, but some water went into my ear. I have to fly in 3 days. Can you help? Will my eardrum rupture. I'm terrified
No: Your eardrum will not rupture. Don't worry - the water will clear from your ears. However, if you are still congested, the pressure changes from ascent and descent of the plane may cause brief but severe ear pain. No damage is likely. There really isn't a way to prevent this though. ...Read more
