Flight attendant Cici places her trip expertise on her TikTok account cici_inthesky, where she has over 30k followers. The air steward is specialized in insider travel tips, like this one to help with sore ears. She asked, “Do you fly on an airplane?
“This is a product that everyone should have with them at all times, so that if they need it, or if their kids need it, if anyone needs it, they have it.
“It’s a lifesaver. This is the Eustachi.
“You can get it at CVS and it’s very easy to use.”
The Eustachi is a product that claims to naturally treat clogged ears. The product uses air to clean the ears, relieves them while traveling and Cici swears by it.
She continued: “If you have Eustachian tube dysfunction, or your ears just don’t pop for some reason, maybe you have some sinus stuff going on or your kids have some sinus stuff going on.” .
When the pressure changes quickly, it takes a while for the tube to react, which can cause strange sensations and pops in the ear during flight.
Swallowing and yawning can help, as can – according to some – sucking on candy.
You are more likely to experience these symptoms, often known as ‘aeroplace ear’, if you also struggle with a cold, sinusitis, hay fever or an ear infection.
Children and infants have more difficulty with the areoplane ear because their ears are small.
Cici said the product is being used by experts in the aviation industry.
She said: “(Eustachi) saved me because I’m a flight attendant.
“Pilots and so many other people use a product like this to help when their ears aren’t draining properly or they’re inflamed, maybe from a cold or something.
“It’s a must. I’m not sponsored by the product, I just love it.”
The product can be purchased from Lloyds Pharmacy for £49.99 or on Amazon.
How to avoid earache while flying?
Try to treat allergy symptoms
Allergies can wreck the arse before you even fly, making it even more uncomfortable in the ear.
Take some allergy medication regularly before flying to relieve this.
Yawning and swallowing
If you experience ear discomfort during the flight, try yawning and swallowing to relieve it.
Stay awake for takeoff and landing
Sleeping during takeoff and landing means you can’t take steps — like yawning and swallowing — to adjust your ears.
