Dear Annie

It sounds like you might have some fluid in the ear, you can go and see a doctor that can evaluate and give you medication that can clear it up, if it doesn't go away after a few days. If it still doesn't clear up, it would be advisable to see a Ear, Nose and Throat specialist.

Please let me know if you need any further information
