Tibes

If you have had a middle ear ear effusion (fluid) for more than 3 or 4 months and you have a hearing loss of 20 to 30%, a very simple and safe procedure performed by any competent ENT doctor is an incision into the ear drum under local anesthesia, aspiration of the fluid, and insertion of a ventilation tube.

Fluid in the middle ear. how can you this treat at home?

Benign condition

Fever-adult
Middle ear fluid can diminish your hearing for a time but can be left alone & should resolve without treatment. Excluding irritant exposures like smoke or fumes may allow your Eustachian tube to reopen & let the fluid drain. Stretching the Eustachian tube by yawning or learning to pop your ears can help. If U develop pain or fever have it checked.

How will I know when middle ear fluid is dried up/draining?

Middle ear pressure.

Head-ear
When middle ear fluid is resolved, the hearing has improved to your former state. A measurement of middle ear pressure, a so called tympanogram can be performed by an audiologist and can prove objectively that the middle ear fluid has completely resolved in most cases.

Antihistamine

There are plenty of antihistamine non-prescription drugs in the market that can open up your sinuses. Afrin spray for a few days works well, unless you have high blood pressure.
