Thank you for your question on HCM. In my opinion you should consult ENT surgeon. Air travel can cause damage in our vestibular system due to pressure changes in flight. And this aggravate preexisting upper respiratory tract infection. Start with levoflixacin 500 mg once daily with levocetrizine 5 mg once daily with paracetamol 500 mg twice daily all for 5 days. If still not relieved consult ENT surgeon.
