does anyone know how to get rid of water in the ear?

There are lots of juggalos on myLot! Welcome to the community, since you're new! Crazy sounding, but true: use hydrogen peroxide. If you have a cotton ball or just a piece of wadded tissue or toilet paper, dip that in hydrogen peroxide enough that you can squeeze the excess out. Tip your head so the ear that's full of water is facing the ceiling, and drip the hydrogen peroxide into that ear from above with the cotton ball. It'll feel really weird and make an odd noise, but that's okay! Let it sit there for about a minute or two. You might hear bubbles and the fizzing of the hydrogen peroxide. Then, using perhaps another wadded piece of tissue, put it up to your ear and flip your head to the other side. The hydrogen peroxide you put in the ear should come out along with the water that was stuck in there. On a last note, this is perfectly safe. Hydrogen peroxide is actually the main ingredient in a lot of ear cleaning products, and it cannot "get lost" in the ear. While it's in your ear, it may also do some cleaning. No matter how often you use Q-tips, this will help reach the places in your ear you can't get to, both for the water and ear wax. If all the water doesn't work the first time, try it again. If it doesn't work after a couple of times, you may need to check out other options. Hope this helps!
