Question Thick mucus and sore thoat one ear noisy and acts if water in it

Since I had a spring cold or a respertory problem this year, all has got ok except my right ear seems plugged up and I can hold nose and attempt to draw in air and it pops and clears up for about a minute or two. this has been going on for a month or maybe two. It is very annoying and I do sing some and it sound way out of tune. What goes?

Re: Thick mucas and sore thoat one ear noisy and acts if water in it

You are probably having Eustachian tube swelling from allergies. It is very common and yes, very annoying. I would try a combo of non-drowsy antihistamine like fexofenadine, plus a decongestant like pseudoephedrine on a regular basis. It may take several days to open up and stay open. If that doesn't work, see your Dr. and ask for a Rx for a nasal steroid spray. That helps the nose and the Eustachian tube, and keep up the antihistamine and decongestant until a hard frost kills off the weeds, etc.
