Hi, I have a cold and flew today from NYC

Hi, I have a cold and flew today from NYC to SFO; all the stuffiness went in to my ears! They are blocked now. I tried taking a decongestant; using my neti pot (which cleared my sinuses but not my ears), and sitting by a humidifier. I'm trying not to take more decongestants, as they make me agitated. What else could I try?

Hi. My son aged 12 has been suffering from a blocked ear since he flew back from Vietnam. It has been 7 days. He had chesty cough and blocked nose before flying there and is still having a mild cough. Why the blocked ear? (he told me it is like having a blocked nose except it is the ear). thanks Cindy (Singapore)
