Welcome to healthcare magic and thanks for putting up the query
your husband has developed eustachian tube blockage due to continuing nasal congestion
only flonase won't help

Hi, My 3 year old has bad enviornmental allergies and takes a antihistamine and nasal spray everyday. She usually has a runny nose with clear mucous, itchy eyes and even wheezing when the weather changes or if the pollen is high but it usually goes away and is not severe. She has had a really stuffy nose, alot of thick mucous and a bad smell from her nose. She had a nose bleed last night and Im cocerned thats it might be more than allergies.
