  • Keep taking regular doses of decongestant, take a hot shower and then drink some hot herbal tea. That always helps me. I always get congested with clogged/painful ears too. Hope you feel better.

  • Drink lots of hot beverages. Many doctors now will not give you antibiotics till you have had an infection for three days. If it doesn't go away in 24 hours call and make an appointment, maybe you will get lucky, if not at least you will only have three days to wait. GL

  • Try nose spray - ears and nose very closely connected and clearing the nose can sometimes help the ears.
