Question: For almost 2 months I have some mild pain under or behind the left ear.
This pain remained for 30 or 60 minutes, and it appears during cough or cold.
And it seems ear drum is popping in and popping out sometimes when breathing deeply.
Please suggest what should I do for this.

Thanks for the query.

I have read your query and understand your concern.

After reading your clinical history it appears that you are most probably having

Tab Paracetamol for pain with inflammation ,
Antihistaminic Tab Claritin (Loratadine 10mg) at night &
Salt water gargles twice daily .

You will get relief .
