You could develop deadly amoebic meningitis otherwise with severe headache, nausea, vomiting, stiff neck, fever, coma, convulsions, and death. ...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

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

Why does diving in deep water cause ringing in the ears?

Why does diving in deep water cause ringing in the ears?

A brief shallow dive well within dive tables will not likely cause dcs. Give more info to get more info. Can re-ask. ...Read more

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.
