I would guess earwax buildup--I've had that happen many times, unfortunately.
It just needs flushed out. First time, I went to the doctor, but after that, I just did it myself.
You can buy earwax remover, like Debrox, or Murine, I believe. I usually use sweet oil, a few drops in the ear to soften the wax, then I flush it out with hydrogen peroxide, using a small bulb syringe.
Sometimes you have to do it several times a day, for a few days, but it always works for me!
Just be careful not to force the peroxide in really hard--gentle squeezes will usually do the job!
half deaf stinks...the only time it happend to me after swimming, it turmned into an ear infection so bad ....go to the Dr., if hthat isnt an option try the stuff for swimmers ear.It gets all foamy and hot, and then you feel better. I forget what it scalled, but you can get it at most any drug store. good luck!
LOL, he used a vacuum to suck out the water that would not drain thru the auditory canal that leads down to your throat. then he put in a tube to drain it. I just say he used a Kirby cause that's what it felt like and when it opened it froze my tonsils.
My husband really is going deaf. It took me about a year, to figure out he asnt just ignoring me.(all the time..) He truly didnt hear me. Its awful!!! I do hope youll go to your Dr. Is it a millitary Dr. ?
No thankfully I can go to a Dr CLOSER to where I live unlike my hubby who has to go to the nearest military dr office which just happens to be close to the LAX lmao I have to call and get a doctor...ugh it's such a pain dealing with them because they give al ist and then a lot of times those doctors aren't even in the area. go figure!
This reminds me of my late father-in-law. He always had an "ear thing", and that man was always dumping one thing or another into that ear. He had some weird stuff called, "King of the World" That was one of his favorites. Whatever he dumped in, though, never worked. I'd think, since you can pin it to swimming, it will probably clear up on its own.
Before you poke anything smaller than your elbow into your ears... If you wish to naturally drain them after swimming.. then you lie down on your side and lay your head flat to the bed (not a pillow). Stay there for 15 mins and then do the other side.
If that doesn't work for you... then use your elbow or get them professionally syringed.
Sorry your sick. I got a cold about a week ago, second one this year, and I even quit smoking!!!!! But the thing is, my ears have been all plugged up and Ive been coughing alot. What did you Dr say? Are you ok?
