Depends what it: Is from. If it is related to minor sinus/allergy issues causing an ear to be mildly congested, trying massaging behind under your ear, just behind the angle of your jaw.

Plugged: Plugged ears after a cold is very common. This may be due to swelling of the eustachian tube so that the ear cannot equalize pressure or from direct inflammation of the middle ear.
