Eustachian tube: Might be swollen throat tissue in upper throat, where the eustachian tube opens. Ask your doctor about using neosynephrine (phenylephrine) nose drops in the blocked side so that they sort of go to the ear through the nose. Ask your doctor about using Clear.ease lozenges - to reduce swelling in that area. see www.hydromedonline.com
