No, this is a problem best solved with alcohol. Like all problems. (We kid, we kid!)
Your tube-like canals are lined with delicate, oily skin that causes H2O to sit on top, similar to the way raindrops bead on a freshly waxed car. You need to break the surface tension, and that’s where the alcohol comes in.
“It’s far less prone to beading up, so the water will run right out,” says Dr. Rauch.
Your treatment plan: Soak a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol, lie down on your side, and squeeze the liquid into the affected ear. (You might need to massage the outside to help the alcohol drain into the canal.)
Now sit up and tilt your head the other way so the water is able to drain out. No success? The water could be trapped behind wax buildup. Time to visit an otolaryngologist, who can clean it out. For a list of specialists practicing in your area, go to entnet.org and click on “Find an ENT.”
