Thanks for posting the query
The symptoms described by you could be related to otitis media
(middle ear infection
). Otitis media is the inflammation/infection of the middle ear, secondary to the blockage of the Eustachian tube (the tube connecting the nose and the ear). Once the nasal end of the Eustachian tube is blocked, the normal secretions of the middle ear get trapped, giving rise to the sensation of fullness in the ears. And, if the tension exceeds the normal limits, the ear drum will rupture and the fluid drains out.
You need to consult your doctor for a complete evaluation and management.
Meanwhile, you can try the following:
1. Encourage her to drink plenty of warm water.
2. Steam inhalation 3-4 times a day for 2 minutes.
3. To avoid chilled food and beverages/coffee.
4. Avoid plugging of the ear when it is discharging.
Hope with the above measures she will feel better. Revert back to me if you have any further queries.
