do i heat it up alittle or just use it normal?

so back when i was a swimmer my mom used to put rice in a soak and tie it off. we would put it on our ears to get the water out. well i have had fluid or something in my ear for 4 days. i saw the doc they said oh its a little dirty use the hydrogen proxide and it will be ok. ummm 2 days later still having hearing issues. when i lay down its like fluid closing my ear. so im hoping that maybe the rice sock will work. only question is do i heat it up a little bit in the microwave or no?

  • Not sure. I would say no though.

  • I don't think so....I think maybe the rice will draw the water out.

    Here are some other suggestions.  Good  luck, I HATE having water in my ears!
