I do not think it is a viral infection with symptoms for such a long duration. He can try taking steroid nasal spray
, an antihistaminic (such as fexofenadine
- safer in cardiac patients), steam inhalations 2-3 times/day and encourage him to drink warm water. If the ear drum is weak enough to get damaged by blowing the nose probably he could have got a perforation of the eardrum
. But I feel it is more of fluid accumulation behind the ear drum causing the reduced hearing. Let him consult an ENT specialist
and get a thorough examination done.
