Indeed, colds can increase your risk of experiencing otitis media. How so?
Colds usually occur due to inflammation in the nasal cavity due to allergies, irritation, or infection. It could also, colds occur because of other triggers, such as uterine polyps, deviation of the nasal septum, to other tumors around the nasal cavity. Inflamed nasal cavity can cause inflammation to spread to the middle ear because it is connected by the Eustachian tube. As a result, inflammatory fluid (pus) can accumulate in the middle ear, then slowly damage the eardrum. This condition is the possibility that it can indeed cause the appearance of disturbing sounds in the ear as you experience today.
However, you also need to know, that sensations such as wind or ringing in the ear does not always indicate otitis media. It could also be, this complaint occurs due to other causes, such as Meniere's disease, otosclerosis, excessive noise exposure, blockage of earwax, jaw joint disorders, tumors or injuries to the head or neck, acoustic neuroma, side effects of drugs, and so on.
Therefore, before making a decision, you should first check your complaint to the doctor or ENT specialist so that a deeper examination is carried out, for example by using a special device called an otoscope and / or audiometry. In this way, the cause of your complaint can usually be identified properly, and given appropriate treatment.
In the meantime, you should do:
