Dear Doc,My wife's ears continue to remain blocked after a flight last month. She has tried puffing and exhaling air, saline water gargles but no releif. Can you please suggest some decongestant/other medicine which can be of help.

She most probably has fluid behind the ear drum. She can take T. Relent o.D once at night time for a week. Also use Otrivin nose drops followed by steam inhalation twice a day. If the problem persists, see an ENT specialist.
