Re: Allergies and fluid in the ears
Oh, yeah. Allergies can cause fluid (mucus really) to build up in your ear canal and your eustacian tube (not sure if I spelled that right - connects ear to throat). Very uncomfortable. Take the sudafed religiously for 3-4 days. If no improvement, call the doctor back. An antihistamine in combination with sudafed would probably help as well. Holding a warm, damp cloth up to your ear will help thin the mucus and get it moving more quickly. A nurse told me that once and I have found it helpful.
