  • it will drain on its own. If you want to speed it up, get moving. Motion will slosh the fluid around and knock it out. You can jump up and down or go for a fast walk. Vacuum.

    If it's in there more than an hour, swab a little rubbing alcohol in your ear with a Q tip and everything will drain.

  • It's all good that it's moving. The fluid behind your eardrum is connected to your sinuses, so if you can blow your nose and you feel less congested, it's just going to take time.

  • Try laying on that side so it will drain out slowly as you sleep or watch tv.

  • Put a couple of drops of apple cider vinegar or onion juice in your ear.
