Eustachian tube dysfunction

Dr. Edwin Robinson is treating Eustachian tube dysfunction.

The most common cause of Eustachian tube dysfunction is excessive mucus and inflammation of the tube caused by a cold, the flu, a sinus infection or allergies.

Children are more at risk since they have a shorter and straighter Eustachian tube.

Symptoms of Eustachian tube dysfunction usually go away without treatment. But your doctor can provide some tips to help it go away.
