How do I unblock my ear due to a bad head cold?


Finally got this cold from my OH. Doctor checked my ears and he said the cold is mainly in my nose and throat.

Had pain in my right ear last night and now I am deaf in it.

I keep blowing my nose but it won't "pop".

I can feel/hear it sort of popping when I swallow etc and if I lay in certain positions I feel like it's gonna unblock but it doesn't.

I googled it and found some sort of massage exercises where you rub behind your ear whilst opening your jaw and moving your head about to try and shift it but I looked a bit stupid doing it and it didn't help!

When I was a kid my mum used warm lavender oil etc but I've been told in pregnancy you can't.

Buy crystals from the chemist and get sniffing them, that should soon clear your ears.

Yep or the sinex nasal rod things. I also always put a hot flannel over my ear to ease the pain as well.
Get well soon xxxxx

Crystals are honey. I can't remember the name of them but you put a small amount in a bowl and add boiling water, think they are mentol crystals but the chemist will keep you right. They're amazing!

Iv Exact same problem with my ears at the Mo
i was at GP yday and my ear problem is linked to my Nose
and iv also got Vertigo Back too as a result of the ear imbalance

My left ear.. driving me mad

sooo My gp has told me to buy a nasal spray a certain one
cant remember the name of it wrote down somewhere
she said that will help with the fluid in my ears...
before i got pregnant i was using ear drops and the was working great

this is a re-acuurent thing for me , after a carshow feb 08
was a midnight car meet on a beach in the middle of the bad weather
i have my own bunch girls who model at carshows and i was there that night with them, lets just say NEVER ever again will i ever go out without my ears been wrapped up like that
am suffering since... i might be popping back to chemist later on so il find out in tere name of the spray and if tey can suggest anythin else for us


xx

Olive Oil is perfectly safe and was recommended to me by my ENT consultant as I cant use my normal ear drops whilst pregnant. Ive had constant ear infections since I was 2, so I know how u feel!
Warm Flannel over your ear can help too, try not to get any water in it and wear a hat or put some cotton wool in your ear when you go out to stop the wind from getting to it. xx
