This is Dr. David

he could have a viral infection or allergies causing the fluid in his inner ear.

your benefit might benefit from taking allergy medications like Allegra 180mg a day, Claritin, Zyrtec

and also steroid nasal sprays like Nasocort or Rhinocort which can help clear up your sinuses and can help the fluid in your ears drain.

yawning and thrusting your lower jaw forward at the same time can help open up your eustachian tube as well which is the tube which drains fluid out of your inner ear down into your throat.

has he tried any allergy medications and steroid nasal sprays to help?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
