The water's never gotten stuck in the tubes after doing it...it feels really good after blowing (not too hard, tho).
You don't have many choices. That one's as old as the hills and done loooooong ago.
I've never heard of the ear drops you're talking about. It makes sense since mucous membranes absorb meds. Please check the side effects for the phenylephedrine (or is that what nasal decongestant sprays have in them?). Interesting....I'll check it out.
Hope you get some relief.
I will see if i can do it, the whole cup do you say!!
That stuff is the nasal spray stuff. its in pills too! but i suppose the pills give you more side effects as they reach the whole body, the ear drops dont have many side effects apart from an itching feeling for a while.
Theya re also called tympagesic, i really want to know about them.
