Thanks for your query.
Noted your history of echoing in the right ear.
You have all the reasons to have echo, that is spring allergies, plane trip, swimming .
It is difficult to believe that you have echo in spite of the treatment that is nasal sprays, oral steroid, puncturing whole in the ear drum.
CT scan may show additional problems that have continued with your problems.
I would advise to have antibiotic and anti-inflammatory to be given along with the treatment which you already been taking.
You have to avoid all the factors like plane travel, swimming pool and anything that gives you allergy to get an early and permanent results.
