3 year old. One ear not hearing anything. Flat response to tympanometry test. Treatment?

My 3 year old daughter just had a flat response tympanometry test, due to one ear not hearing anything. The other ear was fine. I am treating her with added moisture in the air and trying to get her to pop her ears like you have to do in an airplane. I will go back to have her checked in 2 weeks again. Is there anything else that I can so to help her get rid of fluid at home before we get put on prescriptions?

Thank you for your query,
The tympanometry response has to be interpreted by your audiologist and ENT specialist.
Your Doctor will look for the causes of hearing impairment in that particular ear by examination.
The treatment depends on the cause of hearing impairment.
If there are any local causes of conductive causes of hearing impairment, ENT specialist will advise the treatment options.
So consult the ENT specialist for further advise.
Hope I have answered your query.
