Nasal congestion with eustachian tube blockage

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
The popping in the ears is due to eustachian tube blockage caused by nasal congestion.
You should take a combination of levocetrizine plus phenylepherine twice daily.
Xylometazoline nasal drops three times a day.
Steam inhalation and chew a gum that will help to relieve symptoms.
Take paracetamol for pain.
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available only on prescription.
