Just got back from our hols, whilst there I went into the pool the first day, ans still have water in my ear that just will not come out, a load came out on the flight back, but I can still feel water in there and I cant hear any better,I cant get into the doctors til Tuesday, any idea what they will do? I think I may have a perforated eardrum but how will they get the water out?
Thanks for the links, yep I lie on the side of the blocked ear but it does'nt help, if I stand on my head, (I was desperaste) I can feel the water running and my hearing comes back, but it does'nt come out of my ear and when I stand bacvk up I can feel the water running back down
We stayed with my mum and stepdad (they live in Lanzarote) it is there pool and they are very hot on hygiene, as soon as I went under the water and came back up I went very very dizzy, so I think somrthing must have been already wrong with my ear.
ahh I see, In that case if you are otherwise well, you could try some brufen, an decogesteant antihisamine type thing from the chemist and som e cerumol?
Also warm som olive oil on the back of a warm spoon as you get your dh to drizzel some in your ear.
massage behind the ear and ly on your side with that ear fcing up for at least 15 mins.
If you dont feel well pain is unbarable or symptoms dont imporve with this, I dont think it would be inappropirate to go to out of ours.
