Clogged ears, can it be allergies?

Blocked ears: Ear- blocking does sometimes occur as part of a person's allergy symptoms, because the eustachian tubes can swell when there is allergic inflammation. Ears can also itch, along with nasal and eye itching. Itching is more specific to allergies than ear blocking, because ears can also block with colds or ear infections, or even external problems like wax buildup.

Is it safe to fly when suffering from clogged ears caused by a cold?

Is it safe to fly when suffering from clogged ears caused by a cold?

Safe, but painful..: I wouldn't necessarily cancel a flight if you have a cold, but because of the pressure change, you might have some pain in the ear. I recommend to my patients taking some sudafed and Ibuprofen about an hour before the flight, and if it's a long flight, also about an hour before landing. If the pain gets really bad, have a doc check it out after a day or two. Happy flying!

My ear feels clogged and has a low ringing or humming noise what should do? Just started this morning

My ear feels clogged and has a low ringing or humming noise what should do? Just started this morning

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your symptoms. However, your eustacian tube (tube that goes from the inside of the ear and empties into the throat) may be closed off. That can create the sense of pressure and may be causing the ringing (tinnitus). Hydrate well. Consider use of an oral decongestant. You might also consider using a product like afrin (oxymetazoline) which is sprayed in the nose. Make sure that you don't use it more often that twice a day for a max of 3 to 5 days. Your symptoms may be the result of congestion.
