Is ear blockage common with cold symptoms?

I have had cold like synonyms for about a week and a half now. I also developed a ear blockage a few days ago and now have a hand rash. I have been taking prescribed medications for about two days now but they don t seem to be working. Do you have any ideas to what this could be

You can have upper respiratory tract viral infection.
In such case rash also can develop. So symptomatic management done for that. You can take benadryl or low dose steroid to relieve congestion. Take warm water for drinking. Don't take excess spicy foods. Vitamin C lozenges can be beneficial.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
