The Impact Of Closing One Of The Nostrils While Exhaling Rapidly?
if we have a runny nose and runny nose by closing one nostril will there be a chance that snot mucus can enter the ear ??? r n r nI do that and then my ears pop … r nHowever, I gently blow it out … and in an open mouth condition. r n r nPlease respond
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
The difference in pressure between the middle ear and the surrounding air causes the eardrum to stretch to accommodate the condition. When you close one of the nostrils while exhaling rapidly, it's possible some of the air is forced into the middle ear through the eustachian tubes. This causes an increase in pressure in the middle ear compared to outside air, giving the sensation of a full ear or popping due to stretched eardrums.
Secretions or snot may not enter the eustachian tubes due to anatomic factors that are not gentle enough to make it difficult for the secretions to flow back into the channel.
If there are signs of infection such as fever, green discharge, tightness, or decreased appetite, you should consult with your doctor to get adequate treatment.
That's all, hope you can help
