Customer Question

hi. I had a quick question . I went out of town last weekend and was fine, but then when I woke up on Saturday morning (we left Friday afternoon), I noticed that my right ear seemed clogged up. I figured that it was due to the fact that I had my windows down and that I was sticking my head out enjoying the fresh air. We came home sunday evening. Anyway, after a couple of days with just trying to work it out in my own, I tried 3 OTC/home remedies for this and nothing has worked. What else can I do and what could it be ?

ok thank you
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 1 month ago.

I would recommend you to add xylometazoline nasal spray and take steam with menthol crystals in it. If it does not get relieved get a check up from your doctor to rule out any infection. Chewing gum can help.

Hope this helps.

how would nasal spray help an ear problem ? My ear feels like it is clogged up
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 1 month ago.

Because this spray gets back in your throat where your ear tube opens in your throat. Sometimes that tube gets clogged.

Hope this helps.
