Hello doctor,

I am suffering from a left ear blockage, and it happens to me many times. Blockages get open when I move my jaw. I am suffering from this issue for the past two to three years, but not regularly. Commonly, I used to get it after swimming and due to cold. I am not taking any medicine right now. Can you suggest me any medication?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You need a proper evaluation with audiogram and impedance to prevent recurrence.
  • I suggest you tablet Allercet L (Levocetirizine) one at night with Nasivion nasal drops two drops twice daily for five days. Please review with reports.
