Brief Answer: Xylometazoline nasal drops and paracetamol Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. Earache with nasal blockage is usually due to Eustachian tube dysfunction and you seem to be having rhinopharyngitis as your throat also is having pain. Without pharmacy, over the counter the medicines (I suppose) you can get and will help you are: Please use Xylometazoline nasal drops 2 drops three times a day along with an analgesic (you can use paracetamol/acetaminophen) three times a day after meals. Also take hot water steam and antiseptic gargles like hexidine. Any over the counter available mouth wash will serve the purpose. In case the problem does not improve, or worsens, you may need to go to emergency room but I hope the problem will improve with the above mentioned treatment. Feel free to ask another query. Regards
