8 Comments for the Clogged Ears Home Remedy

Anonymous

Ok guys so I got a cold over a week ago and am still recovering from it, but about 3 days in my ears clogged up and felt like they were getting worse every day! I tried EVERYTHING on this website and NOTHING worked!It was horrible! Today my left ear clogged up really badly and the right was just clogged a little and I was so tired of it. I searched again. I tried blowing through my nose, being upside down, doing it in the shower, hydrogen peroxide, EVERYTHING! So my advice to you is....GO TO THE DOCTORS!!!!! Yes I may have spent a total of 100$ for medicine and the doctor but it was sooo worth it! If you're recovering from a cold, you most likely need a prescription for it! If they don't give you one, DEMAND IT! The other doctor I went to gave me 2 over the counter medicine's and neither worked, but the doctor I saw today gave me a prescription for (I know it's a lot): a nasal spray (it works wonders), a steroid that loosens phlegm, and the Z pack to help clear my sinuses! It's already working! And also she recommended me taking Mucinex D: severe congestion. Go to the doctor!!! That's the best solution!!!

I am going through the same thing right now. Um still getting over my cold and my ear has been clogged for 3 days. I've tried 2 different ear drops, provide, a few amoxicillin I had left over, and nothing has worked, STILL. I guess I'll be making a trip to the doctors office tomorrow. Thanx she the advice

Amoxicillin you had left over?!! Please tell me you're joking. First of all, there should NEVER be any antibiotic leftover. You should take exactly what your doctor says for the amount of time specified. Secondly, antibiotics target specific bacteria...yes, amoxicillin is a 'broad spectrum' antibiotic, but how can you know whether it's right for what ails you? And thirdly, if a virus is causing your ear problem, an antibiotic will just make things worse. If you're not sure about what you're doing, see your doctor first.

Soooo.... going to the doctor and getting a prescription is the new home remedy?

Going to the doctor for clogged ears after a server cold is the only thing that has helped me also. Nothing I did helped except a prescription.

Amoxicillin is for otitis media, and the antibacterial effect of the infection. It takes time for the clogged ears to get better. In fact, I'm having one right now. Also, never blow your nose hard, especially when you have a cold, because the virus from the cold can travel through your Eustachian tube, and make a humid, warm environment, also clogging your tubes, making it perfect for bacteria to live. Best thing you should do is of course, prevent getting a cold in the first place anyways, second, try to cure the cold as fast and as safely as possible. 3rd, just wait. Any physical things you might try could be your own undoing. The others' humidifier, or tea tactic could be if their tubes are clogged due to liquid. There are many reason for your ear clogging, and the best way to figure out is to go to a doctor, of course. Good luck!

Might sound like an easy solution but not all people can go to the doctors. I'm allergic to all antibiotics so home remedies are my only option.

Someone posted that their ears were plugged for three days!!!!!! Oh what I would give to have only had 3 days of plugged ears, I am a day short of a FULL MONTH!!!!!!
Blocked Eustachian tubes led to ear infections on both sides which of course makes the whole thing much much worse, been to emergency Room twice now, decongestants work to work, but its a feeling of oh so close, but not unclogged yet. the best I get is a feeling in both ears of full of fluid.........
