Hello Dheeraj, When water enters ears while swimming ,its easier to bring it out soon after swimming. Never use cotton or earbuds as it pushes water and wax further inside. Follow the instructions below: Use a solution made of one part rubbing alcohol and one part white vinegar. Place a few drops into your ear, then let it drain out. The acid in this mixture acts to break down the earwax that may be holding in some water in the ear canal, while the alcohol dries quickly and takes the water with it. Remember not do this procedure if you have a punctured eardrum. Tilt the affected ear downward, then place your palm over the ear. Pump your palm to create a vacuum. Blow-dry the ear. Use the coldest setting possible. Take over-the-counter eardrops for clearing water from your ears. Lie down on your side with your ear facing down. Try chewing or yawning.

I can't controlling my feelings on sex. It disturbing me and also effecting on my studies. What should I do now.
Sex thoughts, Sex addiction, masturbation addiction, porn films addiction etc comes under behavior addiction. Behavioral addiction is a form of addiction that involves a compulsion to engage in a rewarding non-drug-related behavior – sometimes called a natural reward – despite any negative consequences to the person's physical, mental, social or financial well-being. Behavior addiction needs to be curbed or controlled using your own self will power. Diverting your mind and body away from the circumstances which compels you for the addictive habit, with the help of physical exercises, games, entertainment etc can help you. Never sleep alone. Be always with your family even at night etc are some other tips. Willpower is the key always. Behavioral therapy also works well. Take care.
