Following a bout of rather horrible flu, I've found myself now with what I think is bacterial sinusitis (pressure feeling either side of my nose, and over my forehead, pressure in the ears, and yellow / brown mucus when I blow my nose. Nice.). No biggie, but I happen to currently be in Italy, and I'm meant to be flying home tomorrow. What I'm wondering is that is there any risk in perforating eardrums etc if I can't equalise the pressure? I'm not really bothered if it'll just hurt until it does equalise, but I'd really rather not break myself.
