WARNING !..........NEVER probe into your ear with a cotton swab or other object ,You can very easily damage the ear drum and end up being fully deaf in that ear , Any damage to the ear drum is permanent and there is NO fix for it , Not worth the risk , SAFETY FIRST !!!!!
I have been told alcohol is a not to do- in the case you do have any open problems. If you do want to insist upon using it it is best to dilute it. So like a 1/4 a teaspoon per 10 ml., Ear drops, are good, If you have a baby nasal syringe You can flush the ear out, but warm water not too hot just the right temperature is when you touch it you cannot feel it anymore. but very very mild pressure. Your inner ear drum is sensitive yes. You can get scar tissue in there and minor hurts do heal over time. yet scarring can cause later issues. As frustrating it is, it does tend to come out on its own. Relax your jaw. Open your jaw, swiveling your jaw. Helps some. =)
My audiologist actually told me a home remedy!! Get a small bottle with an eye dropper attachment,mix a 50/50 mix of white rubbing alcohol (do not use wintergreen or alcohol w/acetaminophen added) & white vinegar ( do not use apple cider vinegar or all natural with the mother still in it, just white vinegar. In the small bottle mix half alcohol & half vinegar. Shake well before each use. Put 3-4 drops in the effected ear. If possible do not use cotton balls since the air is needed to help the alcohol dry up any water,and the vinegar prevents any bacteria being able to grow. I haven't had any ear problems since he told me about this over 7 years ago!

One this happened to me.I carefully pushed in a cosmetic cotton cleaning ball and that soaked the water from the earlobe.But if the matter is complicated then you must get it out from an ENT specialist who will have specialised tools. http://www.exuberancebeauty.com/
I know this because my doctor told me, after I got a serious ear infection from moisture in my ear. You are supposed to tilt your head to the side so that it is horizontal and tug gently on your earlobe. You should feel the water dripping out after a few seconds.
Try dabbing a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and put it in said ear with water. Of course, I don't mean stab into your ear, but don't put it all the way in for the sake of safety reasons. My friend tried it after she got water in her ear from swimming and she said it worked; it cleared right up.

i have same problem i always have fluid in ears bad too i was told by doctor sudafed claratin any off stuff like that will break fluid up dont listen to people to hold nose and bow yeah it will work but will blow and eardrum and effect hearing like did for me
over-the-counter treatment for water in the ear (swimmers ear) contain 98% rubbing alcohol in the form of drops to be put in the ear. for many yars i have placed alcohol drops in my ears and my childrens and grandchildrens after swimming or bathing. alcohol dries the water in your ear, just tilt your head and put a few drops of rubbing alcohol in the affected ear then let run out. if your ear is already infected it may take several days of trying
There are multiple ways, but I find using a solution of 1 part rubbing alcohol and 1 part vinegar the best. It dries the water out. You can also try lying sideways with the water filled ear pointing down. Gravity does the rest.
