Any methods/medication to speed up water drainage from inner ear? I have no ear infection, diagnosed by ent.

Tylenol (acetaminophen) or motrin: You can take Motrin or tylenol (acetaminophen) until you are able to see a doctor- someone should look in the ear before you put any drops in the ear.

2 separate problems: Although the blocked ear and sinusitis may be caused by the same virus, the 2 problems are separate and not causing each other. Rather, most likely the virus is causing nasal obstruction leading to sinusitis and the same virus may be causing Eustachian tube obstruction leading to the blocked ear.

Are there any recomended steps for relieving pain and discomfort when a toddler suffers from glue ear?
