In brief: Hearing loss
Some hearing loss is common after a cold, due to eustachian catarrh.
Usually it is transient and hearing should get back to normal after cold subsides.

In brief: Try a decongestant
Your eustachian tubes may be blocked.
Try a decongestant such as Pseudoephedrine first. If that doesn't work, see your doctor.
