I heard a guy at my gym tried to sort out his swelling with a scalpel?!?!
To those saying or implying that getting your ear drained is a sissy move for those incredibly vain just look at the grappling demi god fedor emmelianenko's ears to see that you don't neccessarily have to get it whilst reaching a high level.
My Doctor used a scalpel to drain mine when it was bad a few years ago. I'd let it go for a bit too long so it wouldn't drain through a needle.
I can second the brute shockwave as the only head gear that's worked for me.Dont bother with anything else unless someone else has a good suggestion.

But you choose.your doc however will probably not know quite how to do it if he hasn't done it to himself before.
