Ear Problem
I came down with a bad head cold 2 weeks ago.  The doctor prescribed 875 mg Amox-Clav for 10 days & yesterday I picked up another prescription for Azelastine Hydrochloride nasal spray.  My head is no longer stopped up but my left ear feels like it all went there.  It is not hearing good & I have a dull pain.  Anyone else have these symptoms & if so, what are you taking or doing for your ear?  Thanks.  Evie

Hi!
I all probably you have a blocked Eustachian tube (tube connecting ear to throat) due to the cough and cold.  Try valsalva maneuver (take a deep breath and blow while pinching your nostrils shut and closing your mouth). This will help clear the secretions in the tube that connects the back of your throat with your ear. Doing this maneuver 2-3 times after taking steam gives the best result. Repeat this maneuver at least 5-6 times a day. If this does not help, consult your ENT specialist. Take care!
