Clogged Ear: "clogged ear" feeling can be due to inner ear fluid or cerumen in outer ear canal. Inner fluid can cause eustachian tube dysfunction, often w/ concurrent nasal sx. Consider afrin ns 3x/dy x 3 dy, netipot or nasal saline rinses. Need to see md if increased pain, fever or no improvement as congestion clears.

See an ENT doctor: You might want to try another decongestant but would recommend that you first see an ent. Yoo might also benefit from steroid nasal spray if this has an allergic component. Try saline nasal rinses with a neti-pot. But best to see a doctor.

Running nose: If your symptoms have been present for ten days you might check with your doctor for the possibility of an ear infection. Otherwise, i would saline nose drops 4 times daily.
