Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Supportive care with antihistamines, warm salt water gargles and home remedies will help. Some advil will relieve the pain and swelling. If fever is there then get evaluated for sore throat infections.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care


Since the last october i have had some problems with my left ear. The problem started when i used a waterballon, to rinse the ear of earwax. But when i used the waterballon with water, i added WAY to much water in my ear, I mean alot. And the first week i couldt hear on that ear, but it got better with the weeks, although the "water-feeling" in my left ear was still there. Weeks after i got a earinfection, because of all the water that was in my ear.

Anyways. Now, so long time after, I can still feel the water, if its the water I feel. For example, when the sounds is very high, when i'am screaming etc, then i can feel a "boop-water-feeling", hard to describe. It lasts 1-2 seconds, just when i am screaming/high sounds. I have also rinsed my ear for earwax, but the thing is still there, and its a bit annoying.

Does anobdy know what it could be? Is it some water still left, or something other?
