Maybe,maybe not: Fluid behind the ear drum can accumulate if allergies swell the drainage tube (eustachian tube).It transports the normal mucous made within the middle ear to the back of your throat. For the liquid to drain, the swelling within the tube must diminish and allow the fluid to drain.It will tale time but the meds can help.
