Hello, Previously a few days ago I had a severe cold and cough that led to an infection of the middle ear. Already to the ENT and given antibiotics and nasal spray. For now the cough and flu have greatly improved, and the ear has not felt covered with fluid, but throughout the day the right and left ears still feel uncomfortable, like tight, and like there is wind inside, but does not interfere with hearing. For today’s medicine is up, is this included in the healing process or are there other symptoms? Because the bottom of the ear (side cheek) when pressed feels a little pain / tight. Thank you, please help.

Hello pinnipinno, Thank you for the question.
The nasal cavity and throat are connected to the middle ear by a channel called the Eustachian tube. This tube functions to equalize the pressure inside the inner ear with the outside air pressure. If you have an infection in the nose and throat, this infection can affect the function of the tube so you can feel complaints in your ears such as feeling blocked or hearing loss. In addition to disrupting the function of the tube, this infection can also spread to the middle ear through this tube so that sufferers can also experience middle ear infections (otitis media). Otitis media can also cause temporary hearing loss in sufferers.


If you still experience hearing loss (such as hearing the wind), you should check with an ENT specialist. The doctor will re-examine your ear to determine whether the complaint is caused by an infection that has not been handled optimally or because of impaired tubal function that has not returned to normal after the infection has healed. The doctor will determine the next treatment that suits your condition. For the time being, please keep your ears clean and dry. Avoid putting anything in the ear. Avoid traveling by airplane.


Hopefully this information is useful.
