36 Comments for the Ear Congestion Home Remedy


I have been visiting this site and many others like it, daily for the last 3 weeks. I came down with a chronic sinus infection, of which has been horrible. Since then, my ears have clogged and not budged for 3.5 weeks. I just had a cat scan done and do not even have the results yet. I have tried everything from meds, antibiotics, chiropractor, ENT, ER, Sinus washes, homeopathic, sticking garlic in my ear - need I go on? Well today was a break through. Just in time, too - cause I was about to have a break down. I tilted one ear to the ceiling and pinched my nose and blew. I felt an overwhelming amount of air - and an incredible amount of 'gunk' leaking down the back of my throat - then I did the same to the other side adn the same thing happened. I cannot say my hearing is back to normal - as I have to keep doing this over and over to get more and more gunk out....but I am hoping and praying that this is a step in the right direction. I saw another girl unclogged her ears the same way - well, it works - but it may take some time. I did a bunch of soft blows - I would not recommend blowing hard - cause it does hurt a bit when they pop. Good luck - this has been by far the worst illness I have ever endured!

This works ! - Thank You


I have the same problem. I have had a cold for a week and my ears are so clogged. I also have been using the pinched nose and blow out the ear till they crack. There seems to be this sinus virus going around and it takes forever to recover from it.


I have similar problem with the clogged ears. I had facial cellulitis which caused a bacterial infection in my ears and I took all my antibiotics and they are not swollen anymore but still clogged. I tried your method and it felt like it was working but is still clogged. I'll keep trying. Thanks for the info!!!


I did this same method back when I was 18 (I am now in my 40's) and ended up at the emergency room. I popped a hole in my ear drum. Be careful when you do this method. Yes it's the only way I found it to work, other than chewing gum on the same side my ear is closed. This moves the muscles in that area back and forth which after a few days loosens the mucus in your ear.

tired of saying 'HUH?'

thanks whoever you are that posted this.


YOU CAN POP YOUR EAR DRUMS! This is not a good thing to do, may work once or twice, but you can cause irreversible damage to your ears forever! just a warning.


I have been suffering for 2 months with sinuses and clogged ears and it was driving me crazy. I was sitting at work and read about pinching your nose and blowing to unclogg your nose. I tried it sitting at my desk and it is working. My ears are clearing more and more. Thank YOU!!! (But I give credit to God 1st)


It worked but do it gently and take some time because it can hurt your ear.


Thank worked on one ear and the more clogged one I'm still working on, but so glad to have gotten this method from you. I'm so tired of not being able to hear and feeling that pressure!


THANK YOU!!!!!...left ear was driving me crazy! Just tried it, didn't work the first time around but kept trying and it worked!!!!:)
