My wife's ear got plugged when she went swimming yesterday. Now it really hurts and the pain seems to be going almost down her throat. What can we do?
See doctor ASAP: Your wife may have contracted an infection in her ear canal and topical antibiotics can be used. Possibly she has an infection behind her eardrum and needs oral antibiotics. Severe pain and fever indicate the infection is progressing and is serious. See a doctor immediately and inform the doctor where she swam because this clue can help determine antibiotic use. Pseudomonas bacteria is common. ...Read more
I currently have pharyngitis, went to the dr 3 days ago. My throat and congestion is getting better but my ears seem to get more and more plugged. Why?
Connected: Ear nose and throat are all connected. Sometime inflamation of the throat will cause blockage of the eustachian tube which will give you these symptoms of ears popping and getting plugged. Steam inhalation and a humidifier at home will help with these symptoms. If your ear hurt or if you have a fever, get back to your doctor. ...Read more
Very difficult: It is hard to answer the question because it is non-specific. Popping of the ear may be a physiological phenomenon. For example, swallowing alone can almost always be felt as a popping sensation in the ear. The swallow causes the muscle that opens the eustachian tube (auditory tube) to open and gases from the back of the nose equalize pressure in the middle ear. See ENT for specific diagnosis. ...Read more
I had a bad throat n cough. The throat is good, the cough is clearing, but now my ear is plugged. Tried yawning, nothing works, what can I do to hear?
Strep throat a month ago. Took zpak, feel better, no pain now, still white patches in throat&right side tonsils look weird&struggle w plugged ear.Why?
Tonsils post-infx: It sounds like the infection cleared up ok (azithromycin is not my favorite drug for strep, it works ok), but you have more concern about chronic changes present in your tonsils and that is what is likely affecting your ear as well. If this is a one time thing, i'd give it another 4-8 weeks as long as you're feeling ok. If you have had chronic problems with recurrent tonsil/throat, time to see ent. ...Read more

Probable allergies: Itchy ears could be caused by wax or eczema. Sometimes there is no obvious reason. Prescribed cortisone drops usually are very effective. Sore throat and congested nose could be caused by viruses, bacterias and allergies. Allergies are very common. Tx try Claritin (loratadine) or allegra, but no decongestant like claritin-d/afrin/allegra-d. Decongestants can elevate blood pressure, cause racing heart/insomnia. ...Read more
