how do i unclog my ear

...depends on what is clogging it. Can you be a bit more specific? Six words in a posting doesn't really give me much to go on, my friend.

went and done a cbc and my white count was at 20,000. i was told that i had bacteria. the skin over my eardrum was about to pop. it has never popped yet and i am getting dizzy and cant hear out of it. is there anything i can do at home that will pop it so it can drain?
Rod_Moser_PA_PhD responded:
It appears that you may need an oral antibiotic. Based on what you have shared, I cannot recommend any specific measure to "pop" your ears. You will be taking a chance that your eardrum will rupture.

Allow your medical provider -- someone that has examined you -- to make these treatment decisions.
