Depends: If symptoms have lasted less than 7days, use Ibuprofen 400 3 times a day for 3days, then as needed. Take 2 showers a day, as warm as you can tolerate, run the water right on your face to heat and and humidify the mucous, so you can cough it up and blow your nose more easily, then put mentholatum right under your nostrils. The eucalyptus in mentholatum works. If symptoms worse and > 10d, see doc.

Now: This is too long. See your physician now, and have your TSH and free T4 checked now. It they are normal, then you no longer have hypothyroidism. But if they are abnormal, you need to restart your meds to prevent long term complications.

The virus usually causes the initial infection, and the patient is colonized with the bacteria that secondarily infects the middle ear. These diseases are transmitted by hand to mouth contact from another infected host, the same as a cold. Not from blood, food.
