Well as you describe,he has developed ear infection and eustachian tube blockage due to persistent sinus infection/nasal septum perforation.
He needs to be seen by ENT specialist for a clinical examination rather than consider wait and watch approach.
His symptoms'll not improve without getting proper treatment.
He shouldn't ignore his symptoms.

Well possibly his eustachian tube get blocked resulting in difference in ear pressure.
Also he needs to take antibiotic for 7-10 days.

I would strongly recommend to see doctor.
