Nose cancer survivor Lim Wai Cheng shares his personal experience in relieving a blocked ear the natural way, without medication. Recently, on two occasions, when I blew my nose after flushing it, the fluid went into my ear even though I did not blow too hard. I have had this problem of a blocked ear right since the completion of radiation for my nose cancer. This time, after experiencing the discomfort in my office, I spoke to the company GP who prescribed ear drops and an antihistamine.
I threw the medicines away and, as I knew the cause of the problem, I tried to flush my nose and gargle my throat to get rid of the phlegm. Two days later when I got back to work, I could hear gushes of flowing water when I walked past heavy traffic. Everything seemed so noisy, I could even hear my own heartbeat.
Child Safety and Injury PreventionThis is your chance to get answers to your questions on how to better childproof your home! The proper function of these tubes is essential for draining fluid and ensuring that proper air pressure in the ear is maintained. If you’ve ridden in an airplane before, then you may have noticed how a change in air pressure can affect your hearing and how comfortable your ears feel. While imbalance in middle ear pressure occurs in most people from time to time due to colds, sinus infections, allergies, and airplane rides, it is common for some people to suffer from severe ear problems that cause an excessive amount of pain or discomfort.
In many cases, a blocked ear can be alleviated by closing your mouth, holding your nose, and gently blowing like you would when blowing your nose. When flying, it is especially important that adults advise children to follow these tactics during takeoff and during landing in order to maintain proper air pressure and to prevent ear pain. For a chronically blocked ear or a more severe ear infection, an ENT surgeon may need to perform surgery. If your problems persist or become quite painful, it is important to visit an ENT doctor to find out what is causing the problem. Natural Tinnitus cures often have a much higher rate of success when compared to traditional medical intervention. In short, while it is important to visit with a qualified doctor to ensure the underlying cause of your particular case of Tinnitus is not caused by a serious and correctable problem like blocked Eustachian tubes, true sufferers from Tinnitus may want to consider trying one of the many natural remedies available today.
I had operation on my right ear to have bone drilled out last winter, one week off work, 8 weeks out off the water, total success, left ear to be done later (ill spare you all the details and photos). Best way is not let water into your ears, with out dough Blue Tac is great, down side is its hard to hear with blobs in your ears. I used to have to go at least twice a year to the doc to have my ears plunged to get the wax out, disgusting how much crap can get trapped in there.
The vacuum cleaner sounds good in principle, but freaks me out a little bit because it can go wrong easily. It all comes down to keeping your ears clean and dry, but for starters I would go the DOcs. Might be swimmers ear - no need to bust out the black and decker and start drilling just yet hah. Mine has improved after using Vosol brand ear drops and also (a hint from an ear doctor) is to use a hair dryer to dry out the canal after contact with water.
Having just gone through a blocked ear for a short time (fixed last Friday), go see your Doctor. Your eyes ears and nose drain into the same pipes which run down beside your ears and down the sides of your neck.
The syringe with water was used a while back and worked great but had the same problem in the near future. I never wanted to be one of those old dudes with blu tak in my ears that you see surfing all the time! Lots of advice - I feel your pain, I went to the chemist and got an ear cleaning bottle, essentially like the syringe method.
Also I threw the cotton wool buds in the bin as apparently they cause a buildup of wax that water gets trapped behind causing the infuriating clogginess. I have tried many of the suggestions posted so far but have found the best thing for me are ear candles.


Used to find that a couple of drops of olive oil in each ear before a surf worked well for me (in cold SA waters). The anestesist got 2 chemicals to use, something to put you to sleep and a muscle relaxant(once you are sleeping) which stops your breaving and they plug you onto a respirator. I had extreme difficulties to fall asleep for quite a few weeks after as my body would jerk me awake everytime I would fall asleep. I was wheeled into surgery just before 6pm, given first needle, was woken up post op a few hours later about 10pm. Doc and anaesthetist called in to see me about 7am, I had brekkie, waited for my daughter to pick me up about 10am.
Besides the blue-tack, you can also try Doc's Pro-Plugs - they come in about 3 sizes so you need to get your size right. If you do decide to have the op, do it in your off season as it puts you out of the water for a while. Having been unfortunate to suffer three bouts of cholesteatoma (pre kiting and totally unrelated to water), I'm keen to preserve what hearing I have left after having 50% of my hearing bones removed thru modified radical mastoidectomy procedures. Try keep the cold water and air out of the canal by use of Blue Tac or plugs, and wear either a helmet with ear protection eg Gath type, or a windstopper type hat or headband that covers the ears. Best to have ears checked out if the problem is reoccurring too, as stuff such as the Aqua Clear type stuff should not be used if there's already perforation of the drum. I know some people are adverse to wearing a helmet, but they do keep the ear plugs in and stop the wind.
With the Doc Pro plugs you can attach them with fishing line to your wetsuit or rashie so if they do ever pop out you won't lose them. Having dealt with all of these ear problems (without the op thankfully) I can feel for everyone who has had to deal with this. I have tried so many methods to combat this, and I can say that ear candles did nothing for me!

It never occurred to me to visit an ENT specialist as getting an appointment would take 2-3 weeks. Besides, I had no time and extra cash to spare.
I consulted my Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) physician and analysed the problem with her. I tried not to get into heavy traffic or crowded areas, which meant I stayed at home and indoors as far as possible. Each individual may react differently to the above experience, and we would like you to exercise discretion.
Your Eustachian tubes are a specialised system that connects the middle ears to the back of your throat. You may also notice that when your yawn or swallow, your Eustachian tubes allow air to enter into the middle ears briefly, which often works to equalize air pressure.
This is especially common in children who have higher risk of ear infections due to the shorter length of their Eustachian tubes.
This type of surgery usually involves a small incision in the eardrum in order to drain any fluid that has built up and to equalize air pressure.
Described by sufferers as a ringing, buzzing or hissing in the ears, Tinnitus can become so difficult to live with that it can effect every aspect of life. The first is ‘subjective’ in which only the sufferer can hear the knocking, ringing or clicking.
These methods tend to address the underlying cause of the problem instead of simply treating the symptom.
As an added bonus, because of the very nature of the remedies, the people that use the more natural cures receive the added benefits of a healthier life style.
Instead of suffering in ‘silence’ take the step towards clearer hearing and thinking today by researching all of the available treatment options.


Doc Prop plugs are the best as you can still hear and not feel like your ear is all clogged up which does affect your balance a little. Perforated ear drums are REALLY painful having gone through that with my board slamming the side of my head in the 70's. Probably an infection and there may be some discharge that needs clearing and the Doctor can do it on the spot. It gets that to the point where I blow my nose and get dizzy from my sinus becoming compressed. Sometimes if I massage the top of my cheeks and sides of my ears and neck it clears the **** out of there. I love the idea of vacuums and hair dryers but may go see the doc as its still blocked and now I have an annoying ringing!
Anyway ill fire some questions at the doc (your methods) and come and let you know what he says about them! Though I will be using the syringe in 4 days after I use drops every 12 hours and he believes blu tak is fine to put in ear and recommends it. I am sure that it has helped somebody out in the past, but it is not something I would ever recommend to anyone. We concluded that I should take Chinese herbs to loosen the phlegm that was stuck in my middle ear.
I resumed my weekend exercise in the park after a gap of three to four weeks due to my busy schedule. The article does not represent the views of the NPC Support Group or its members, the National Cancer Centre of Singapore (NCCS) and SingHealth.
That’s right, all of us suffering from the confounding ringing in our ears are actually suffering from another disease. The second is ‘objective.’ Under this form, qualified doctors, utilizing specialized tools, can also hear the noises. In some cases audio maskers or hearing aids will be used in an attempt to cover up or mask the noises.
Many of these remedies are simple, common sense measures that attempt to address things like stress levels and poor diet choices.
Plus, (the plugs with the small hole in them) with the Docs when you get driven down to the bottom after a wipeout on big waves your ears will clear the pressure change, where as if you just plug them up they won't, and that hurts. As I stretched my mouth and stuck out my tongue, I could feel the pressure in my left ear ease slightly. On Sundays, I enjoy sweating out in the park, cook myself a good meal, watch my favourite Japan Hour on Channel News Asia, and then have my blissful afternoon nap.

Since I started this regime I have not had any infections, and I haven't had to have them syringed in two years. However, after the 30 minute session, I did not feel particularly relieved of the ringing ear. Nature has great healing power and I felt good after spending one-and-a-half hours in the fresh morning air. I have used this method in tropical places where infection was just starting and no doctor around for miles.
