Suffering from cold. Diagnosed as fluid buildup. On antibiotics, allegera and sudafed. Ear started hurting. Concerned

I had a bad cold and the doctor said I had a lot of fluid built up. She gave me antibiotics, allegera, nasal saline , and sudafed . My symptoms improved the first two days and I felt progressively better - no sore throat, sneezing , coughing, eyes watering or anything. My ear still continued to bother me. Now both ears hurt. Can I just wait it out and hope it gets better? I already finished my 10 antibiotics. I m still taking sudafed, allegra , and Tylenol.

Pulmonologist 's  Response

If these symptoms are recurrent/ long standing, your diagnosis is allergic rhinitis. It is best treated with nasal sprays (containing Fluticasone + azelastine) twice daily. Avoid oral and nasal decongestants. They cause rebound congestion.

Avoid using mosquito coils/ vaporizers/ deodorants. Remove fungus on damp walls in your house, if any.
