Thanks for your question and sorry to hear about your dad's discomfort. These types of questions are difficult to address through an online forum. However, my best thought is that your dad has pressure build up in his middle ear. The outer ear is part of the ear you can get to by a cotton swab and that your ENT can get to. The middle ear is part of the ear behind the ear drum. Pressure or fluid build up in there can cause pain and discomfort that we sometimes get when we fly or give a sensation or "fluid" like your dad is describing. If this is the case, using a saline (or salt) nasal spray and/or a decongestant can open up the Eustachian tube that connects the middle ear and nasal passages and de-pressurize the middle ear. Just a thought.
