I am 32, and have been having left ear ache for the past 2

This answer was rated:

Hi. I am 32, and have been having left ear ache for the past 2 days. I have sensation of fullness in my ear, and my ear drum seems sensitive [loud noise worsens pain]. Yesterday, I started noticing a discharge — yellowish, not foul smelling. I have no fever, I'm not feeling unwell, and I have no itchiness, or ringing sensation in my ear.
JA: Are you experiencing any dizziness? Do you have a fever?
Customer: Hi
JA: Hi. How can I help?
Customer: No dizziness. No fever
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Nothing else. Thanks

Thanks for the prompt response

I understand your concern.
And it’s my first privilege to pay attention and provide you with suggestions to relieve your discomfort/ worry.

Well as you describe, it sounds like Eustachian tube blockage/ ear infection.

Do steam inhalation and saline gargles.
You should take the nasal saline spray and OTC Nasonex spray.
You should take Ibuprofen and Nightnurse/Claritin.
You should hydrate yourself with warm liquids.
You should start a multivitamin supplement and vitamin C lozenges.
Elevate your head while lying down.

If your symptoms will persist then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.
Let me know if you have any further queries so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.
Waiting for your response.
Thanks.
