If your child has water in his ear and you are sure that your baby is absolutely healthy - you do not worry about anything! Getting into the ear water, will not bring absolutely harm to the child, if in time to get rid of it. The structure of ear is such that a large number of so-called curls and curvature of the auditory canal, as well as the eardrum, completely protect the middle and inner compartments of the ear from water, and therefore, more often water enters the external ear, which in principle is not difficult to extract. In addition, the earwax, secreted by the body, possessing many protective properties, also protects the human hearing aid from getting different microbes and fluids. That's why before bathing children is not recommended to clean their ears.

First of all, ask the child to tilt his head in the direction of the ear where the water is felt, raise his leg, and on the second jump, as if slightly shaking his head. Then you need to put the child on the barrel and ask him to lie down a little in this position. If this does not help, attach the palm to your ear, creating a vacuum between your ear and palm in this way, and take it off sharply. You can also ask the baby to take a deep breath, then tighten the nose and exhale sharply through the ears. You can also attach a small tissue bag with warm salt, a heating pad, or something warm to the ear . Can help get rid of water and inserted for a while in the ear gauze or cotton wool. And you can ask your baby to swallow more often.To go for help to a specialist is also necessary when, after the manipulations, the water remains in the ear, and the behavior of the baby becomes more and more suspicious. If pain, itching, purulent discharge with odor are attached to the simple gurgle, and also in cases when the child has tinnitus and he does not hear anything - immediately run to the clinic or call the doctor at the house.

I think that a lot of parents face with this problem by the way!!It is not wonder guys .We as parents should pay as much as possible attention to it!I also heard guys that the most effective means of protection against ingress of water into the ear - is a rubber cap. This cap protects well as sits tight and closes the ears, but the children do not like it because of the pressure. A little protection you can get from cotton balls, they get wet. Also if you don`t have opportunity to buy it you can control your baby`s actions in the sea during swimming!

I want to believe that all fathers know that the best decision is prevention and if you is conscious about prevention your baby from it you won't have any problems. But here I would like to support the comment when it is talking about caps. It is really true to my mind that the most effective means of protection against ingress of water into the ear is a rubber cap. This cap protects well as sits tight and closes the ears, but the children do not like it because of the pressure. A little protection you can get from cotton balls, they get wet. I am sure that it helps because my children are always in that caps

Some parents are impregnated with Vaseline oil, believing that it helps. Yes it helps, but prior to the first immersion in water. These beads only protect from sand. A good alternative which helps Vaseline and you should lubricate the ear canal with it. Use the cosmetic stick with a cotton swab on the end.

I want to say that getting into the ears of water is not dangerous, provided they are healthy. Therefore, unnecessary worry is not needed. The structure of the ear is such that the curls and somewhat uneven auditory canal protect the organ from water ingress. The structure of the auricle also allows you to capture the sound wave. The inner and middle ear are covered with a tympanic membrane, which protects against penetration of infection and water. But those children who have been ill in the past with acute otitis media, on the tympanic membrane may have holes, which makes the middle ear and the inner one vulnerable.

People often get water stuck in their ears after going for a swim or taking a bath, especially in the summer months. While water in your ears can simply be unpleasant, if you don't remove it or it doesn't drain out on its own, then you may have to deal with the inflammation, irritation, or infection of your outer ear and ear canal, which is also known as Swimmer's Ear. Luckily, it's often easy to remove water from your ears with just a few quick tricks. If treating it at home doesn't work and you experience ear pain, then it's important that you see a doctor as soon as possible.
