I have had water stuck in my ear for about 4 days now and i just cant get it out. I have tried several ear drops and nothing has worked and i feel like its getting worse. I do not have health insurance as of right now and money is a little tight. I think i am getting an infection now do i have to go to a doctor or can i find drops myself to buy?

Have you tried alcohol? My mom used to put a few drops of alcohol in my ears when I was younger after swimming in the pool. Let it sit for a few min, turn over and do it in the other ear. leaving cotton balls in your ears to absorb any excess fluid remaining.
