Ear Congestion Home Remedies



My home remedy for ear congestion comes after weeks of misery and repeated failures to take care of the problem.  I tried steroid ear drops, antibiotics, Benadryl, and other things, and nothing helped.  Finally, a pharmacist told me about an approach that involved Pure Grain Alcohol.  I bought some at the local liquor store and started using it.  You put two drops into the ear once in the morning, and once at bedtime.  You need to do this for at least a couple of days.  This caused the moisture in my ear to dry up and my ear then became unclogged.  This was the one solution that worked.


When I’m suffering from ear congestion due to a cold or an allergy, I have a simple technique I use.  I just yawn, and this will unblock my ears.


I had been suffering from a bad cold when one morning I awoke and my ear was completely congested.  I let it go; but, the next day it happened again.  Then several days had passed, and it still wouldn’t go away.  I tried every thing I could to relieve this condition.  I tried irrigation, vinegar and water, and other approaches.  My pharmacist suggested Sudafed, and this didn’t work.  A friend at my work place suggested that I try Rescon GG.  I got this at my pharmacy and it cost $15.00.  This didn’t work immediately; but, it did eventually clear out the congestion in my ear. 

I’ve also found that if you continue to yawn, this will cause your ears to pop and it seems to break up the fluid, allowing it to drain.  I hope this help you out!      


I had a terrible cold and blew my nose too hard.  This resulted in a buildup in my ear canals.  I then discovered a neat little home remedy to treat ear congestion.  I took my index fingers and placed them inside my ears with my nails extending just past the curve inside the outer ear canal.  I kept my fingers straight and had them pointing at an upward angle, then I tried to pry the outer opening of the ear up and pointed to the back.  Then, I yawned and tried to stretch the muscles as long as possible.  It was only a matter of seconds before I felt a warm drainage in my ear canals.  I repeated this process a few times and it seemed to do the trick.   If you want to prevent this from happening, be careful to not blow your nose so hard that buildup goes into your ear drums.
