Your wife must be suffering from allergic problems also, I suppose. Please get her examined by a good ENT specialist
. Secondly, ear pain
is because of her nasal block and not because of water entering into the ears. There is a tube connecting nose and the ear (eustachian tube), whenever there is nasal block the nasal side of the opening of this tube gets blocked. As the block continues for a long time there is negative pressure created inside the middle ear causing earache. Headache is due to nasal block and sinus
obstruction. I would advice you again to consult your ENT specialist and meanwhile encourage her to take steam inhalation, drink plenty of warm water and continue using saline nasal drops.
