I Wouldn’t Normally Do This Kind Of Thing

Warning: Silly post ahead.

Raft3r has water on the ear – the left one to be more precise.

I spent the whole day trying to figure out how to get water out of my ear before it turned into luga (otitis media).

As a child, Raft3r was taught to get a basin of water and tap it against the infected ear. Though this trick proved to be effective in the past, this time it didn’t work.

I then tried to headbang ala rocker. I thought shaking my head like a lunatic would make the water come out. It was futile.

Raft3r’s third attempt was jumping. I skipped up and down while bobbing my head. That didn’t do the trick either.

Getting frustrated gets my blood pumping. Raft3r doesn’t quit easily.

I thought of cleaning my ear with q-tips but decided against it.

Then it hit me.

I poured water to the already infected ear and tilted my head. Boom! Water came gushing out of my ear.

This has got to be the most exciting thing I have done in awhile.

I really need to get a life.

i never thought luga has pus. open wound ba siya?

Raft3r said...

jerick, Sabi kasi ng dictionary pus English ng luga eh. Mali ba? Hehe

Wendy said...

I used to do that too when I was a kid every time we would go swimming. Good thing it was effective in your case. Sa kin hindi. Suki ako ng ENT even then until now. Btw, nagswimming ka ba kaya natrap tubig sa tenga mo? Or naaliw ka sa shower? Hehe, hinay-hinay lang. Mahirap mabingi. Parang matanda!

Raft3r said...

wendy, Sa shower lang. Nyahaha

next time, keep a chicken feather. yung tip daw nun, gawing parang Q-tip, and sure daw yun na nagpapalabas ng tubig sa ear. hihihi =)

Raft3r said...

judayski, I keep a chicken feather for something else. Nyahaha

janice suarez said...

you just had to tilt your head towards the side of the ear that had water in it. it would have flowed out.

Raft3r said...

janice suarez, That sounds simple enough. Hehe

gbert08 said...

that trick really helps. that happened to me several times already since i've been swimming a lot. it is very uncomfortable and yeah, you could get ear infection..

Raft3r said...

gbert08, Masarap mag-swimming. Di masarap magkaluga. Hehe
