  what is a good remedy for fluid in your ear

 The easiest way to remove fluid from your ears is to let gravity do the work. Tilt your head sideways until the ear containing the fluid is parallel to the ground and wait. If nothing happens, shake your head a few times or hop on one foot in an effort to dislodge the liquid. Alternatively, you can lie down and place your head against a hard surface. Turn to your side, positioning the offending ear near the ground. Place the palm of your hand flat against your ear and press in as hard as you can. Quickly remove your hand, creating a temporary vacuum and pulling the fluid out. If the mechanical method seems too tiresome, try speeding the evaporative process with the application of heat. Tug the lobe of your ear away from your body, stretching the canal of the ear into a straight line. Hold your hair dryer 12-18 inches away from your ear. Set the dryer to warm, not hot, and place the air flow on low. Turn the dryer on and aim it directly into the ear canal. Hold the dryer in position for approximately 30 seconds. The hot air will help the fluid evaporate.
