Feeling of clogged ears after a flight.

Patient : My left ear is still clogged hours later after a flight. How can I unplug it.
Doctor :   The ear gets plugged due to pressure changes during take off and landing. The best way to avoid this is to  eat or drink k something during take off or landing which helps keep the eaustation tube open and prevents feeling of clogged ears. Also try and swallow which will help with un blocking them. I hope this helps.
