If: If there is no pain or unusual drainage you probably don't have an ear infection. It's possible you pushed some of the wax further in and created an impaction. I would try to soften the wax (if still in there) with a couple day useage of something like debrox or ceruminex (otc), pick up a baby bulb syringe, and self irrigate your ears in a ear down position with luke warm water. Hopefully this will clear your ears. I not, somebody should lok in your ears to determine the cause. ...Read more

Try This: Water in the ear after swimming is common; the easiest way to remove the water is to pull back on the ear. Sometimes the water will simply drain after this maneuver. If not, use a hair dryer on the coolest setting about 5-7 in from the ear while pulling the ear back; lastly, 1-2 drops of white vinegar will also dry small amounts of remaining water. ...Read more
2 possibilities: Sudden plugging of the ears after swimming very often means impacted wax or the possibility of external otitis, a mild infection of the skin of the ear canal. My bet is that the water going into the ear canal was absorbed by the wax already in the ear canal and made the blockage worse. Try hydrogen peroxide for a week, 4 drops 4 times a day, or see an ENT doctor. ...Read more
I feel ear pain after swimming, water goes to my ear I think during swimming. What should I do now?
Pressure changes: Depending on how deep you are swimming, small changes in middle ear pressure can occur. It could also be that water gets stuck in your ear canal.

After swimming a few weeks ago if I lay on the right side to long I wake up with a fuzzy feeling in my right ear. Could this be swimmers ear?
Probably not: Swimmers ear is an acute infection of the external ear canal and usually happens within a few days of triggering water exposure. Swimmers ear is usually quite painful too. The fuzzy feeling could be simply wax, but there could also be an underlying hearing loss that is being perceived as fuzziness. It would take an exam and possibly a hearing test to determine the cause. ...Read more
Can not hear out of my right ear after swimming please help I went swimming, then about 2 hours later I used a q tip because I hear water sloshing around, my hearing became instantly muffled, there was no pain involved and 3 days later its still muffled w
The external ear canal is a long and narrow tube that ends in the eardrum. Earwax is usually produced in the mid-section, and generally comes out slowly with the growth of ear canal skin.
Water from swimming or shower can enter the ear canal inadvertantly. If the ear canal is completely clean, this water will most likely evaporate spontanously over the next few hours. However, if there is already some earwax (cerumen) in the ear, the water can get trapped in the earwax. Earwax is typically found in the ear in a dehydrated state, and exposure to water can make it re-hydrate and expand. This will then lead to a further sensation of blockage. If attempt is made to use q-tips, the earwax could often be pushed further in, and complete blockage of the ears can result.
Your best bet at this point is to remove the earwax and liquid in order to restore your hearing and prevent infection. This could be accomplished by over the counter peroxide-based ear washing systems. Alternatively, your doctor can remove this for you in the office and determone if any further treatments and medications are needed. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: In an older child or adult, ear pressure or pain can be from an ear infection, a sinus infection, or some problem inside the throat.
