Benadryl For Ear Fluid
Probably not: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is an antihistamine that crosses the blood brain barrier and causes drowsiness. Ringing in the ears will not be helped by an anti-histamine or any other drug. If you truly have middle ear fluid, the medical or surgical alleviation of the fluid might resolve the ringing. ...Read more

Fluid behind eardrum. Taking Augmentin/Nasocort but not helping. Can I use swimmers ear solution drops?
Expert opinions? Which antiseptic drug can you recommend for otitis media (fluid behind the ear drum)?
Confusing question: I am not aware of any antiseptic drugs used in the treatment of otitis media. However, we do use antibiotics.Those used vary by the age of the patient, the germ expected, personal allergy history and other factors derived by an office visit.Your pcp can sort this out. This site is not a substitute for an office evaluation when indicated. ...Read more
Not needed: In general, fluid behind the ear drum by itself doesn't need an "antiseptic" or antibiotic. If the fluid is infected that is a different story and antibiotics can be helpful. If fluid formed because of a nasal or sinus infection then again an antibiotic can help. Most antibiotics in common use such as amoxil, augmentin, ceftin, (cefuroxime) Bactrim etc... Are helpful. ...Read more
My granddaughter has an ear infection with fluid in her ear and was giving flonase bu how is flonase going to self and ear infection with fluid ?
Age matters : I'm a pediatrician, but hope i can still give you helpful advice. In babies and children, we treat ear infex based on the degree of illness and/or discomfort with the infex. Fluid can be present behind the eardrum with an acute ear infection. If it does not resolve and/or it's adversely affecting one's hearing, we are quicker to act on that. See an ENT (ear/nose/throat) specialist. ...Read more

Resolved painful swelling of outer ear canal (from swimming) w drops, oral antibi & steroids, still have fluid in middle ear. Can decongestants help?
Slowly: Decongestants are appropriate, alone or with new generation antihistamines. However, nothing helps dramatically and it can take some time to fully recover. Smoking is a direct negative factor by irritating the throat opening of eustachian tube. Increased fluids are also appropriate. There are adults, very infrequently, with tubes when problem persists with nothing helping. ...Read more

Anatomy: As you have been told in plain and patient english this is an impossible scenario. There is absolutely no way for this proposed scenario to be real or possible. It is not possible. That is 100% accurate. Given your age and this concern I am very worried about your mental health. I think you may need to be seen urgently by your family doctor or by a psychiatrist. ...Read more
