Hi! Anyone have any home remedies that helped drain fluid trapped in the middle ear (ottis with effusion/glue ear) around Park Ridge? I've been dealing with it for two weeks and am desperate to hear clear again! Thanks! �

There are ear drops you can buy at walgreens or cvs for a couple bucks. It dissolves the wax blocking the water in and gives instantaneous relief. They're only a couple bucks but they absolutely saved my sanity a couple years ago on vacation. I think they're mostly hydrogen peroxide, but I'm not sure.

Please see an ENT. Do not mess with your ears. Would you use a home remedy in your eyes?! I lost my hearing in my right ear a just over a year ago. I live with the sensation of plugged ears. It was probably from an infection I decided to let run its course.

I am a nurse practitioner- but cannot give recommendations on Facebook. This article is a good place to start for you! Consider popping into your doctor or a walk-in clinic to take a quick peak in there to be sure it is what you think! https://patient.info/health/eustachian-tube-dysfunction
