Thank you for getting back with the requested necessary information.
This sounds like eustachian catarrh.
The symptoms might last as long as 7 - 14 days please.
You may require intranasal steroids for this apart from antibiotics.
The choice of steroids can be Mometasone or Fluticasone and they should be taken twice a day into each nostril for a period of 6 to 8 weeks.
These are prescription medications and currently you can take Claritin one tablet once daily till you get a scheduled appointment either with your primary care physician or an allergist.
You can also use - Flonase nasal spray.
As a home remedy you can do warm salt water gargling three or four times a day before food.
Avoid moving around in chill weather and excursions of ambient temperature inside the house.
Your physician might also prescribe medication called Monteleukast 10 milligrams taken once daily in the evening for a period of 6 to 8 weeks and this particular drug is very good in keeping the allergy under control on prolonged usage.
I will explian you some anatomical issues in the situation you are facing so that you an be well informed why I have suggested the above medications.
Ear has 3 parts.
1. External ear...one visible outside.
2. Middle ear - behind the ear drum.
3. Internal ear - attached to brain.
There a tube called eustachian tube connecting middle ear to the pharynx.
This is what will open during yawning and equalize the pressure during a flight take off, relieving the blocked ear feeling.
Sometimes this tube gets blocked and gives a feeling of blocked ear due to the air in the middle ear getting absorbed.
So the above medication will open the eustachian tube from internally, equalize the pressure and give you relief from blocked ear sensation.
