I would not: spray any ear tubes yourself, ask your doctor to do that for you. If you have allergy symptoms such as sneezing, hot/cold or itching, try taking an OTC antihistamine like cetirizine, loratadine or fexofenadine and see if symptoms will improve. You can also try OTC Flonase or fluticasone spray for your nostrils to relieve runniness or mild congestion.
