Many people consider ear pain and ear infections to be specific to childhood, but be aware that adults may also develop ear popping and cracking and clogged ear following ear infections and allergic reactions.
Ear pain can be due to congestion of the sinuses, or due to infections, or it can be caused by allergic reactions.
Allergens, can also cause inflammation in the ear and earache.
Next, we want to say what is the link between allergies and allergic reactions with ear congestion and ear ringing and ear popping?

The link between allergic and allergic reactions with earache and ear popping

Some people in the community may be allergic to substances such as pet lint and plant pollen.
Allergies cause these stimulants to stimulate the immune system of susceptible individuals, which in turn the immune system releases histamine, With the secretion of histamine in these people, increased production of mucous secretions, swelling of the mucosa and itching occur.

Allergies and ear problems
We cannot say that earache and ear popping are the most common symptoms of seasonal allergies, but there is a possibility of ear infections during allergies.
The mucous membranes of the Eustachian tubes may become inflamed following a reaction to allergens such as plant pollen that is released into the air.

By what mechanism does an allergy cause ear congestion?
In each of our ears, a short narrow tube runs up the top of the throat, above the pharynx, and behind the nose, called the Eustachian tube.
The Eustachian tube plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy ear, such as clearing infectious agents, Prevent infectious agents from reaching the middle ear, Helps to remove secretions from the middle ear and also helps to ventilate the middle ear and balance the air pressure between the two sides of the tympanic membrane.
The wall of the Eustachian tube is covered with a layer of mucous cells. These cells naturally become inflamed when allergic reactions begin in the body.
In fact, it is followed by this inflammation and swelling that the inner path and the space inside the tube become very narrow and even completely blocked.
Inflammation and swelling of the inner wall of the Eustachian tube will cause it to malfunction. One of the most common clinical manifestations following the process of clogged ear is ringing in the ears, and at the same time the opening of the eustachian tube and the balancing of the ear popping occurs.

See below that what problems are caused in the ear following allergic reactions?
Inflammation causes the pressure balance in the ear to be disturbed.
With the accumulation of secretory fluids in the ear, inflammation increases and a feeling of blockage and fullness occurs in the ear. The symptoms that a person feels in an ear allergy are as follows:
ear infection

Can allergies cause ear infections?
What season can increase the risk of ear infections?
As plant pollens increase, allergic reactions become more frequent, which increase the risk of middle ear infection.
The following problems occur in the ear following allergic reactions and inflammation and congestion:
The pressure in the middle ear rises:
Allergic reactions cause the mucous membranes, including the mucous membrane of the inner wall of the Eustachian tube and the cavities of the nose and ears to become inflamed and swollen. This inflammation and swelling causes the ear to become blocked. As a result, following the blockage and inflammation of the Eustachian tube, the discharge of fluid and mucus secreted from the middle ear decreases, and fluid accumulation in the throat and pressure pain in the ear occurs.
When the ear becomes infected, fluid accumulates in the middle ear. If the Eustachian tube is closed due to allergies and the middle ear is not drained and ventilated, the middle ear will be filled with fluid and its amount will increase, causing swelling and inflammation and redness in the eardrum.
Ear ringing
And Loss of balance can also be accompanied by manifestations
In the presence of severe and untreated infection, rupture of the eardrum and leakage of infection and purulent discharge from the ear canal occur.

Can hearing loss be caused by allergic reactions in the ear?
Because the eustachian walls are swollen, fluid builds up in the middle ear, which may cause transient hearing loss.
hearing loss disappears spontaneously as the Eustachian tube opens, following the reduce of swelling of the Eustachian inner wall. 
Popping ear with allergies:
It should be said that when the pressure inside the ear rises, the Eustachian tube should have its function in order to be able to balance the pressure on both sides of the tympanic membrane. Following allergies, fluid secretion and fluid accumulation in the middle ear increase, and on the other hand, due to swelling and inflammation of the inner wall of the Eustachian tube, the drainage path is narrowed, and therefore, with the opening of the Eustachian tube, ear popping will occur.
When the allergy is treated and this inflammation and swelling disappears and the Eustachian tube opens and the pressure between the two sides of the tympanum is balanced, the person feels this popping process in the ear.


What can we do to treat ear allergies?
What are the treatments for ear allergies?
If your doctor finds out that allergies and sensitivities have caused your symptoms, he or she may take anti-allergy medication to control the condition. Anti-allergy medications can relieve some of the pain and discomfort.

  • Cetirizine
  • cetirizine (Zyrtec)
  • Chlorpheniramine (Chlor-Trimeton)
  • Diphenhydramine (Benadryl)
  • Fexofenadine (Allegra)

It is recommended to consult a doctor during ear infections if your problem is not solved with the above drugs, only a doctor can save you from the problem with the correct prescription.
Among the prescriptions that doctors may prescribe in this situation are the following:

  • Cetirizine + pseudoephedrine (Zyrtec-D)
  • Fexofenadine + pseudoephedrine (Allegra-D)
  • Loratadine + Pseudoephedrine (Claritin-D)

Your doctor may add corticosteroid nasal spray to your prescription to treat medical problems such as sneezing and runny nose. These include:
