I had my right nostril cauterized (silver nitrate) for the second time in 2/mo about a month ago. Since this 2nd cauterization, I have had an issue with my ears popping when I swallow and the feeling of my throat being irritated or swollen in someway. It is as if the healing scab/cauterization area is on a nerve cluster or something. This did not occur the 1st time I had this done, though my ENT had to go wider and deeper the 2nd time. My ENT takes months to get into see but I do have my annual physical in June. Is there anything I can do in the meantime to alleviate this issue?
