ENT Specialist 's  Response

This condition of yours is called secretory otitis media as a result of eustachian tube block. You need to consult your ENT specialist and get your ears examined and also you require a tympanometry to rule out the fluid in the middle ear. Till then try doing steam inhalation 3-4times/day, this will relieve the nasal congestion and the ear block as well. Also, drink plenty of warm water and use saline nasal drops 3 drops 3-4 times/day.

As a result of coryza the eustchian tube gets blocked and causes these symptoms. Also get your hypertension checked. steam inhalation and mucolytic agents help to make tube patent. amongst herbal medicines we advise euclyptus oil for inhalation and use of banafsha decoction.
