      Been in pain with my ear since landed in Australia two months ago. All doctors say its blocked Eustachian Tube because of the flight. Recently my head has become really hot and my ear, tonight I went to walk in centre and he said my ear looks really dull not normal at all. I asked why he said doesn't look infected but looks like fluid stuck behind. How do I get the liquid out?

      That may be so, but if it does not resolve, then that is something the doctors need to follow-up on. ETD is not supposed to last forever...

      Most of your questions - and other posts - are best addressed with a doctor.

      If your Eustachian Tube is the culprit, then there are examinations that can be used to narrow down the investigation further...

      1) tympanometry test
      2) CAT scan (not MRI)
      3) visual inspection of the Eustachian Tube (done via the nose).

      Doctor said looks like fungas in my ear :( he gave me ear drops. He said he didn't see that on my last check up.
