In brief: Benign condition

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.

In brief: Saline nasal spray.

Middle ear fliud is usually caused by eustachian tube dysfunction.
The eustachian tube openings are in the back of the nose. Saline nasal rinses can help especially if you have sinus or allergy problems also. A valsalva maneuver to pop the ears twice a day can be helpful if done gently. Medicines like mucinex-d can also be useful for adults without high blood pressure.
