Hello again,

I was waiting for your reply.

I noticed you did not see the info request & went offline.

I am sending the answer so that you can see it when you come on line.

If you have any query after reading it, please ask.

Ear infection can cause blocked feeling.

In most cases it is viral in nature.

As you have congestion, it can be a factor.

Ear is connected with throat by ear tube.

The tube can be blocked due to cold.

You can try Tylenol cold, it can help to reduce the congestion.
If it continues, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.

You may need antibiotic in case of bacterial infection.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.

Regards.
