In brief: Allergy symptoms

Most people know that allergies caused by allergic antibodies (ige) can cause itchy watery eyes, nasal congestion, sneezing and clear runny nose but swelling in the nasaal cavity can also cause ear problems such as fluid build-up behind the ear drum. This can cause decrease hearing, pain or pressure, ringing and occasionally vetigo (spinning or dizziness).

In brief: Very much

Allergies result in inflammation of tissues due to inflammatory mediators released by antibodies reacting with allergens.
As a result the nasal, oral and ear linings swell up causing congestive symptoms like nasal blockage, clogged painful ears and itching of throat etc.
