Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.
I have gone through your query regarding clogged ears and running nose. As you said that you had been examined by your family physician who diagnose as wax in both ears and had given you drops to liquify wax for easy lavage.
You have severe cold
which is also causing blockade of ears. but there is only one point by which we can differentiate both condition and that is -
(a) If blockade of ears is due to fluid in middle ear as usually found in cases of severe cold, here we get blockade along with echo of self spoken words.
(b) If ears are clogged due to soft and swollen wax than we find only blockade and no history of echo of self spoken words.
In this way one can diagnose the condition and if wax is responsible than it should be removed by lavage / succession / manual removal by cotton swab. On the other hand if cold is creating this problem than you should take antibiotic, decongestant and steam inhalations.
I hope this will help you.
