What is chronic ear congestion?
Chronic ear congestion, also called chronic otitis media (with or without effusion) and persistent middle ear effusion, is the recurring, prolonged inflammation of the middle ear, the space inside the ear behind the eardrum. The ears are made of outer and inner ear, separated by a few hairs. The outer ear collects sound and transmits it to the inner ear, which interprets and processes it. The inner ear is filled with liquid that’s constantly in motion. If the eardrum is damaged, the liquid can’t drain out of it, preventing it from hearing properly and often leading to chronic ear congestion. There are many different causes of chronic ear congestion. Some of them include: – Allergies – Food allergies, insect bites, and medications can cause ear congestion. -Congestion in the nose & throat. One of the little impacts of upper sinus issues can lead to ear congestion. – Earwax buildup – If your ears don’t get cleaned often enough, a build-up of earwax can cause chronic ear congestion.
Factors that contribute to chronic ear congestion
There are a few factors that contribute to chronic ear congestion. These include: – Upper respiratory issues. Using your ears “too much” – When you constantly wear your phone or earbuds in your ears, it can cause your ears to become dry and irritated. Try not to wear earbuds for more than an hour a day. – Earwax buildup – Earwax can get stuck in your ear and cause chronic ear congestion. If you have a build-up of earwax, try the following tips to see if they help.

6 Tips for preventing and treating chronic ear congestion
