How long does it take to get rid of fluid in the ear which came about from a bad cold earlier in the year and how do I get rid of the fluid?

In brief: Several days to week

the oral antihistamines are good for this.
benadryl (diphenhydramine) might be another option if you are currently taking claritin or allegra or vice versa
