Plugged Eustachian t: If your ear pain or aching sensation is from eustation tube dysfunction then you can try antihistamines or decongestants but most studies show that it doesn't really make much of a difference. See your dr. To make sure you do not have an ear infection. Eustation tube dysfunction usually resolves on its own with time.
