swimmer's ear?

I think that I might have it, except that symptoms came on suddenly (in the pool) which make me think that maybe I just have water stuck in there or something? I've tried the blowdrier. Are there any over-the-counter remedies? It's that typical water in your ears feeling, and the hearing in that ear is dulled.<br>

Try a 50/50 mix of alcohol (from the drug store, NOT the ABC store)....and white vinegar. Couple of drops.<br><br>
The alcohol helps with drying, the vinegar will help with anything needing killing.
it depends....<br>
that won't make it feel better....<br>
until you can get the fluid out....<br><br>
You'll eventually get good at putting your ear'll hear the stuff in there shift around.<br><br>
If it doesn't start to feel better in a day or 3, head for the doc. They can give you stuff that will help with the drainage.<br><br>
I have stuff in my ears so much,'s become almost normal for me, though.<br><br>
I don't go unless it HURTS.<br>
If it doesn't will eventually go away.<br>
If it's just wierd....<br>
well....I've embraced that wierd feeling.
