Brief Answer:
Nasal decongestant sprays will be helpful.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM.

I have gone through your query. Nasal decongestant sprays will be helpful for eustachian tube blockage. No need to use ear drops. Ear drops are used when tympanic membrane is tore. Normal there is no open connection between middle ear and outside ear canal.

You can use nasal sprays with decongestants like oxymetazoline or xylometazoline. These are available in brands like Nasivion or Otrivin.

Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
Thanks.
