Can popping your ears damage them?

Popping your ears is not good or bad for you. Like much else in life, it can be done in moderation. Popping your ears can open up your Eustachian tubes, but even if you don’t pop them, your Eustachian tubes will also open naturally. In fact, they should open 6-10 times every minute!

How do you relieve ear pressure?

To relieve ear pain or discomfort, you can take steps to open the eustachian tube and relieve the pressure, such as:

  1. Chew gum.
  2. Inhale, and then gently exhale while holding the nostrils closed and the mouth shut.
  3. Suck on candy.
  4. Yawn.

This is likely to be a costly way of doing it, but it is likely to be very effective.

Why do your ears pop all the time?
