In this regard, what is serous otitis media in adults?
Serous otitis media is fluid trapped behind your tympanic membrane (eardrum), without an ear infection. Your eardrum is in your middle ear. Serous otitis media is also called otitis media with effusion. You may have fluid in your ear for months, but it usually goes away on its own.
Subsequently, question is, how do you get rid of fluid behind eardrum? Olive oil can also help prevent infection in your ear, as well as repel water out.
- Warm some olive oil in a small bowl.
- Using a clean dropper, place a few drops of the oil into the affected ear.
- Lie on your other side for about 10 minutes, and then sit up and tilt the ear downward. The water and oil should drain out.
Also to know, how would you describe serous otitis media?
Serous otitis media is a specific type of otitis media with effusion caused by transudate formation as a result of a rapid decrease in middle ear pressure relative to the atmospheric pressure. The fluid in this case is watery and clear.
How does ENT drain fluid from ear in adults?
A myringotomy is a procedure to create a hole in the ear drum to allow fluid that is trapped in the middle ear to drain out. The fluid may be blood, pus and/or water. In many cases, a small tube is inserted into the hole in the ear drum to help maintain drainage.
