Customer Question
I have some popping...

I have some popping in my right ear. I have used Murine ear wax remover a few times, and it seemed to help. But then it comes back, especially if I sleep on that side with my ear pressed to the pillow.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the ear issue? Have you had any colds or flus recently?

I have had the issue for about six weeks. I have not had colds or flus.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I live in southern California, and the Santa Ana winds blow this time of year. They have caused eye irritation and stuffy nose in previous seasons.

Any pain in the ear?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No pain in my ear. More like it feels congested.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I already provided my card information. Forget it. I withdraw my question.
Eye Doctor: Dr. Chip, Doctor (non-eye specialty) replied 8 months ago

This sounds like Eustachian tube dysfunction--a clogging of the tube that equalizes the air pressure across the eardrum

For now I'd suggest either Claritin or Zyrtec but if that doesn't clear this you'd need a short course of prednisone from your doctor

Please let me know if you need any more information
