Air In Ear
Felt cool air in ear as if someone blew in ear. Felt it around temple above ear too. Have sinus issues lately. Is this sensation related to sinus?

Not likely: Unless your fan is incredibly noisy, it's unlikely that the fan generates enough decibels to contribute to hearing loss. The air current itself, shouldn't create any danger to your ear, unless your fan is incredibly dirty and blowing around dangerous material/pathogens - and this wouldn't be an issue with the fan as so much the hygiene of the environment the fan is in. ...Read more
