Question: Since a day or 2 I feel my ears are blocked.. There is no pain or anything as such,. But when cant hear anything loud. I feel some sort of disturbing sound. In both the ears but more on right ear.
Please advise, who could be the cause.

And sometimes, when people speak in a very low tone it is hard for me to hear them.

Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for the query.

I have read your query and understand your concern.

As per your clinical history it appears that you are most probably having eustachian tube blockage due allergy or infection result into block sensation in ear. It result into decrease hearing .


If I were your treating doctor , I would advice
Steam Inhalation twice daily,
Saline nasal spray thrice daily ,
anti inflammatory Paracetamol twice daily &
Antihistaminic Tab Claritin at night.

You will get relief .

Hope this information helpful to you .If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

My nose feels uncomfortable and is painful when i touch it. I think that the mucous is dried up and stuck to the insides of my nostrils...it actually feels like there is glue inside my nostril. This has been going on for about 3 days and it is the worst when I wake up in the morning.

For the past month or so my right hand side nostril leaks 2-3 drops of clear fluid (no taste/smell) whenever I lower my head e.g. bend over, lie face down. No obvious inflamation/obstruction or recent cold, flu, or nasal/head/eye injury. I am male, mid 50's with no allergies, headaches, etc. and occassionally snore if lying on my right side (so I am told!) Septum has always been slightly 'curved' towards right hand side so nasal lining will touch sides during a cold. Non smoker. My partner cannot see any obvious nasal obstruction/swelling/lump but cannot see as far up the right nostril.
