Thank you for this question.
Can I ask if you have allergies? Chronic sinus congestion?
Also, can I ask your age?
The most common cause of this would be allergies and sinus congestion. Basically the sinus fluid cannot flow efficiently and causes recurrent infection.
I am wondering if you are on any medicines for this? Like anti histamines or nasal sprays like flonase.
Has this been tried?
I may be offline for a bit but I can get back to you later when you reply.
Thank you for this reply.
I would try a combination of treatment to see if you can keep the ears/sinuses cleared.I would try zyrtec daily and flonase one spray each nostril daily.
That should help prevent infections.
Yes it is over the counter.
You should be able to get it in the UK.
It basically reduces inflammation and fluid in the sinuses, which are connected to the ears.
I'm hoping this reduces infections.
By reducing fluids and inflammation.
Zyrtec is an antihistamine. Any one will do.
Flonase is a steroid nasal spray. Any one like it will do.
