16 Comments for the Clogged Ears Home Remedy

I must stress that it is VITAL that you do NOT pinch your ear and blow your nose, this is a very bad method. It may work to unclog your ears, but your ears are connected to your nasal cavity and throat. If you decide to pinch your nose and blow it, you will put a large amount of air pressure in your ear which can cause your eardrums to rupture and damage the nerves that are located in your cochela. Your cochela is in your inner ear and your auditory tube connects your inner ear with your throat and nasal cavities. If you blow your nose while pinching it you will cause air to rush up the auditory tube into your middle and inner ear which can seriously damage your ears. I'm posting this because in many areas, it is posted to use this dangerous method, unfortunately I do not have a home remedy for this issue. The causes of clogged ears can be due to fluid build up or allergies (the cause of mine is from allergies). The best way to deal with this is to let time heal it. Your ears won't be like this forever. I suppose the other method that may be useful is to put a heating pad under your ear while you sleep. I don't suppose that there are any hazards to this solution. It seems that it would loosen up any viscous fluid in the ear if that is, in fact, the cause. The main causes that I would assume would be either a viscous fluid in the ear, an infection, or swelling in the ear. If you can resolve one of the three causes, then you can resolve your issue. The topic of a clogged ear is a bit vague to be looking for remedies for. To solve any issue it is vital to find the root of the problem, not a solution to a vague problem. If you always look for a solution before understanding the underlying issues you will never solve your problems.

Thank you. I agree with your comments.. Dealing with MULTIPLE ear surgeries and loss of hearing in left ear as a child, your statements are true. Messing with something so important as your hearing is crucial. But live and learn. Best of luck to all trying to cure pain. I'm there with you, a fast cure would be wonderful!

This is a very helpful article. It does help by telling you some of the risks that you would normally do to unplu your ear or get your hearing better. The explanation about blowing with your ears pinched can cause damage in your eardrum. I have experienced that and I ended perforating my eardrum. This can cause serious infections, so you cannot tetany kind of water until it heals.

I feel your advice is very good and important. You can't always just have a quick fix, and some of the ideas are
actually bad for your ears.
