Hello Dea Elvaretta,
The middle ear is connected to the nasopharynx (the back of the nose and base of the throat) through a channel called the Eustachian tube. This tube serves to regulate the pressure in the middle ear. The position of the tuba is generally closed. Tubes open when you yawn, chew, swallow. You can feel this, for example when you are on a plane or in an elevator and your ears feel buzzing / full, then you yawn or swallow, your ears will return to normal.
Blockage of the nasal cavity, infection of the ear, infection of the sinus cavity, allergic reactions in the nose and sinuses can cause interference with the function of the Eustachian tube. As a result, complaints arising discomfort in the ear, feeling full ears, ringing, or pain in the ear.
History and direct physical examination by a doctor are useful to determine the underlying disease in the Eustachian tube, for example common cold, allergic rhinitis, rhinosinusitis, otitis media, and so on. Treatment generally depends on the underlying disease, for example by using nasal decongestants (to reduce nasal congestion symptoms), avoiding irritants including cigarettes and cigarette smoke, drinking more water, using a humidifier. If there are problems with the ears can be treated for the ears such as administering antibiotic ear drops, cleaning clogged earwax, and so on.
Nasal decongestants generally work by shrinking the nasal arteries, reducing inflammation, and swelling of the nasal mucosa, thereby reducing symptoms of nasal congestion. The use of nasal decongestants must comply with the doctor's dosage rules. Side effects that can arise in the use of nasal decongestants include:
Also pay attention to the instructions for using nasal spray properly. Remove snot and fluid from the nose before using nasal spray. Shake the medicine before use. Place the tip of the medicine bottle in one nostril and press the other nostril. The position can remain upright, no need to look up. Gently press the spray bottle and do the inhalation (inhaling) slowly, keep your mouth closed. It is better to avoid blowing your nose after using the medicine. If after 2-3 days of using nasal spray there is no change in symptoms or symptoms that you feel are getting worse, you should do re-control with your doctor.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
