    I have had this problem myself. And have found that 1 ml. of mucomyst
    (Acetylcysteine) mixed in 14ml of normal saline and then instiled via the nares with your head slightly inverted and then pinch the nares and use gentle preasure to move the solution into the inner ears. Allow to this solution to set for a short time and it thins the fluids and allows drainage to occur. I am then able to blow and clear my sinus and ears.
