Ruptured TM?: Do you have ear tubes? You may also have a condition called chronic otitis media with ruptured tympanic membrains (tm's - ear drums). See your doctor to evaluate this.

Yes: But only if the ear drum has been ruptured, or if you have tubes through your ear drum to drain fluid, and drain fluid so you can hear.

Decongestant: When you sneeze there can be blowback through the station tubes up into the year and it will cause extra air pressure. Sometimes even infection. Use of an over-the-counter decongestant will hope fully open your eustachian tubes enough for the pressure to relieve. What you shouldn't do is stick anything in your ear. Good health.
