In brief: In the canal ?

You can take rubbing alcohol and place it in a dropper bottle.
Most ear canals have a 1 ml volume, so placing 1 ml of rubbing alcohol in the affected ear while you lay down on the good side, will displace the water.The alcohol evaporates readily at body temperature and has an additional drying effect on the canal tissue as it does.Some add vinegar to suppress fungal growth.
