Hi Samantha,

Sorry to hear that you're sick. Is your nose congested? Blowing your nose often can cause the inside of your nostril to be irritated. Since your sinuses are connected to your ears, a clogged nose can also cause the clogged ear feeling.

If the nasal sprays and blowing method aren't working, you could try:

  • Getting moisture: hold a warm, moist washcloth to your face, or spend 15 minutes in a steamy shower
  • Avoiding extreme temperatures
  • Taking an over-the-counter medicine like Tylenol or ibuprofen to treat the pain

If the pain and discomfort continue or get worse, you should see your doctor.

Hope you feel better soon!
