Reexamination: The blocked ear can be from severe nasal membrane congestion and/ or inflammation and fluid in the ear drum. I assume wax isn't causing the blockage. At this point I recommend consulting an Otolaryngologist in view of the ongoing pain and possible fluid build-up. Continue decongestant nasal spray if nasal passage is blocked.
