Used too much pressure doing nasal irrigation. Left ear is clogged. Valsalva maneuver ineffective. Have been taking sudafed. Ineffective?

In brief: May need time

It may take a few days to weeks for the fluid to clear. Avoid irrigation for now but could continue sudafed.
If the hearing is affected or continues for >4 weeks would see ENT to make sure nothing else is going on.
