    Ugh, I hate seating appointments as well, so I feel your pain.

    As far as head colds go, I get ear infections in my right ear about once every 5 weeks. It’s one of my many mysteries. I don’t take decongestants but I do get super clogged up and can’t hear anything. Ear drops do help. If anything, it lessens the thickness of the mucus (sorry if that’s gross lol) and helps it to drain easier. Also, ear infections make me feel like absolute trash so I’ll take ibuprofen if I have a busy workday or something and need to act like a functional human being. That helps tremendously.
