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. If there is no active infection in the ear, then the best treatment is just waiting for it to recover. Some people may get benefit from over-the-counter decongestants. Your doctor may start a nasal steroid spray. There is no proof that these speed recovery. Unfortunately, symptoms can lst 2-3 months. If there is persistent fluid in the middle ear past that time, an ear tube may need to be placed.
