      Hi, whenever I pull on an earlobe and kind of massage the area around my ear, it sounds like having soap in my ear. Like hearing tiny bubbles popping very close to my ear. I noticed this in one ear month ago, and now I can also do it with the other.

      It's not actually soap, I'm sure about that. An ENT has looked in my ears a few weeks back, so it's probably something in the middle ear.

      Is this normal? Does anyone else have this?

      I had that for like a month, it's gone now. Maybe it's the eustachian tubes sticking together briefly.
