Recentely I have discovered and proven 2 very effective ways of getting fluid out of your ear. The first way is by taking a 50/50 mixture of alcohol & vinegar and pouring into ear. Let this rest in your ear for approximately five minutes then tilt head to let everything drain out appropriately. The next suggestion is to use a blow dryer. Place the blower dryer several inches away from the ear and hold it there as long as you can stand it. This will not only dry up the fluid in your ear, but in turn relieve the pain.
