Would putting my head over boiling water and Vicks help to drain the fluid from my two ear infections?

More a waste of time. If something needs to drain it will spontaneously.If you have a middle ear infection the fluid must drain into your throat from the eustachian tube. If outer ear, it drains by itself. If you enjoy holding your head over boiling water, do so & you can relax. I wouldn't ever do it myself.

Severe inner & outer ear infection. I'm on oral antibiotic & drops. The pain is gone but my ear is so full of fluid. Any tips to get it to drain?

Takes time. The fluid is trapped in the middle ear space and must exit through the Eustachian tube. This can take up to 3 weeks or so in a routine middle ear infection. Nothing you take or do is likely to speed this up.Antihistamines may actually slow the process. Read more...
