Not a good idea: The reason is that you want to know what the cause is and treat the underlying condition. As you do that the pain will subside and you will know that it has healed.

So the best is to get it checked and treated first of all. ...Read more
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.
