well good old vick in hot water and sniff will help, even though it appears to be only in your ears, as will an antihistamine. If you have pain them sinutab, be careful it has paracetamol in, if no pain then piriton, or your usual antihistamine med. Usual disclaimer, not if you are allergic, check with doc if on other medications, do not exceed the stated dose, read the precautions, may cause drowsiness. If no change in 48 hours, discontinue and seek medical advice
Sometimes when you get a cold the middle ear fills up with fluid (it is connected to your nose/throat region by the eustachian tube) this can cause a mild temporary hearing loss which is a common symptom of the commomn cold - it should go away when the cold does - if it doesn't - then it is time to see your GP
