Pop and water in the

Water
This complaint may be due to either water or wax that are trapped in your outer ear canal, fluid collection behind your ear drum as commonly happens after a cold, dysfunction of the connection between the middle ear and the back of the nose (the eustachian tube) as occurs commonly with nasal congestion/cold, bubbles naturally found in the lower jaw joint or when the ear drum is perforated.

What does it mean when you are getting a cold and can hear a bubble-popping/ running water sound in the ear?

Pressure change

Running
The swelling in and behind your nose causes the tube that goes from your nose to your ear to not work properly, thus the pressure change in the ear makes you feel clogged and have popping.

Ear feels blocked with water when I blow my nose it pops is it my sinuses ear feels blocked most of the time?

Eustachian tube

Rhinitis
The Eustachian tube allows mucus to drain from the middle ear to the throat.It opens occasionally,permitting air to enter the middle ear, which is what is happening when you blow your nose.The tube can be narrowed by irritants,allergens or infection, causing a build up of fluid in your ears. The sinus cavities are physically separate but can be affected by the same process.

Getting water in one's ear during shower will not cause a middle ear infection or hearing loss. A very distant possibility is an external ear infection like in swimmer's ear.

I hear crackling in my right ear when my head tilts, like water is stuck in my ear but persistent. It started 4 days ago, stopped, then returned. What could cause this?

Serous otitis

Head
You likely have a serous otitis media. This means there is fluid behind the eardrum. Talk with your ENT. Some would treat with antibiotics while others would suggest just giving it time to resolve on its own.

Dr. Harold H. Kim answered:

What causes rid of a "water feeling" in your ear?

Treat problem

Bathing
If the water feeling in your ear is due to actual liquid in your ear, treat the cause. If it is due to actual retained water from bathing or shower, consider a hair blow dryer on cool temperature setting. If it is due to infection or inflammation of your ear canal, ear drum, or middle ear, get it treated. It begins with a correct diagnosis.

Water causes your ears to feel full after a cold?

Congestion

Body
can clamp down on the Eustachian tube which drains the ears into the throat. Thus, pressure is not equalized and can build up in the ear.

Dr. Bernstein Joel answered:

Cause of itching and popping in my ear?

2 different problems

Pruritis
Itching in the ear canal is usually caused by dryness and if you are a Q-tip user, please stop immediately. Ear wax has an important function and will clean itself. Popping sensation in the ear is separate and is usually an awareness of air entering the middle ear from the back of the nose and a gentle popping of the ear drum. Rarely, popping can be due spasm of middle ear muscles.
