Have post nasal drip, ear itching, throat irritation. What is wrong?

I have post nasal drip constantly, and when I try to blow, nothing comes out. I have had this for about a year. My right ear is also itching (inside), several times a day. I am wondering if it s realted and what the cause could be. Are there things I should do to creat more mucus? Either way, it seems to go the opposite direction, I am constantly clearing my throat .

hello and welcome to HCM,

First of all do not constantly clear your throat as that will worsen your situation. If you have a constant post nasal drip you need to consult your ENT who will perform an Endoscopy and CT of the sinuses to confirm a diagnosis and initiate a treatment plan.

For the itch you do not have to do anything except get it examined by the ENT who will suggest you to not to meddle with your ear and not to use ear buds if everything is fine

take care and get well soon
