today is the 3rd day
i am using the drop and taking steam
but a very little improvmnt is there
still i can hear my voice
in the left ear
should i continue the drop and steam?
Have you developed any new symptoms?
Are you able to hear on both sides normally?
Do you have sorethroat / headache?
nasal congestion is not much
sometimes hvng headache
Do you experience ringing sensation in your ear?
no whenever i am talking i m hearing my own sound
pls suggest me a solution
Let me brief you.
Like I said in my previous chat abnormally hearing own voice on one side more than the other suggest
there is either blocked ear or there is fluid collection behind the ear drup.
Fluid collection persists untill nasal congestion lasts.
Steam inhalation and chewing a gum was meant to reduce nasal congestion as well as draining the fluid from the ear through the eustachian tube.
I am not sure if you are doing the steam inhalation thrice a day and chewing gum regularly.
I would suggest you to continue both these remedies
taking the inhalation only once b4 going to bed
you can stop soliwax ear drops for now.
If you don't feel better with three times steam inhalation and chewing gum
you can visit a local doctor
who can examine your ear
and diagnose what exactly is abnormal.
The next specific treatment will be based on physicial findings.
Have you followed what I suggested?
whenever i am holding my nose as giving a litle presser
pressure its giving a relief
This method releases the blocked and congested eustachian tube
and reduces the symptoms.
The same principle works when you swallow something.
*that was the reason
why I suggested you to chew a bubble gum.
I am not sure if you did that too.
yes doing it
Deep steam inhalation also helps in reducing this congestion.
ok i will stop the drop take the inhalation
and chew a gum
If you have been doing both this regular steam inhalation and gum chewing for 2-4 days
the problem should reduce
then will update you on mnday
You can visit the doctor if they don't improve.
thank yo so much
You can follow up on monday.
Do you have any other query?
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
