In brief: Eustachian tube dysf

The ear ache is due to blockage of eustachian tube.
The pressures between you ear and back of nasal passage is blocked. Some decongestants may help and saline nasal sprays. The phlegm is just the drainage that is still coming through. Your infections may be cleared but the drainage may persist.
