I'm in the Dominican Republic for a vacation and I'm leaving tomorrow. I've contracted a cold and my left ear wont pop. I unfortunately don't have any deconjestants here, and they're fairly hard to come by at the pharmacies here. I really need my ear to pop by tomorrow because I have an 8 hour flight back to Canada and I'd like it to be cleared up. Please, please, help?

Please, please, help?Hi Random,Were you able to make them pop before the flight? I'm also from Canada and have come back from the DR 2 weeks ago but brought a pile of decongestants with me - too bad I didn't come across you while I was there. Give an update if you can,B

Give an update if you can,BHi B,What's Ironic is that you posted this exactly a month after I got back, haha.I actually didn't get it to pop, I woke up the morning of my flight and the pressure was somewhat relieved, but it was still there, and unfortunately throughout the day the pressure just came back. I just chewed a bunch of gum on the plane and dealt with the pain. Also the fact that I could barely hear :PMy ear popped about 2 days later though, and it was like someone let my ear breathe.Thanks for responding. :)
