I am on this site because my ears are so full of pressure and pain from a bad head cold. there is no way to unblock it with these silly recipes. it' s fliud in the ear from my sinus. I went online and found a few helpful hints. A a hot steam shower for 20 minutes.... that helped so much.... took advil. next i am going to get an antihistamine to relieve the swelling and fluid. Then all you can do is drink a lot of fluids and rest, then wait it out.. A cold is a cold. it’s best to catch the cold right away before it comes out and use a netty pot.. Then take vitamin C all winter and zinc.. I was away and did none of those and I am paying the price big time. IMPORTANT: AVOID ALL DAIRY !!! This makes it all worse. You will cough up flem for a month. Dairy creates mucus.
