Best Answer

What you have is a condition called "Glue Ear", and it usualy always occures after a bout of Cold or Flu, left untreated it will might correct itself in time (a long time) or alternatively you can be refered to an ENT specialist by your doctor to have it dealt with quickly, I myself would take the ENT rout and get it dealt with

usually a decongestant clears it up but the best is to get advise from your Dr or pharmacist as some decongestants have what is known as a "rebound affect" and when they wear off , the congestion actually worsens . It important to get the right one for your condition

Happened to me several times after a bad flue. It seems it is the grippons and cold clear type tabs that makes the "drip" tough and you get blocked "pipes". My GP gave me cortozone tabs to take and it helped fairly quickly, by the next day I could hear again. Bad news being deaf!

This is fullproof...very uncomfortable, but boy..does it clear you out. If you live near the ocean, you have to cup your hands full of see water and breath it in through your nose. You will not believe what comes out. I've done it, a few times..I lived.

At the risk of causing irrevesible damage, see an ENT. This is not for lay people

If this is still going on for 2 weeks after you had the flu rather consult your doctor
