Upper respiratory infections can occur when bacteria attacks and congests the respiratory tract. This can be brought about by smoking. The throat and nasal passages are infected causing the Eustachian tube to block and build up fluid in the ear. The upper respiratory infections cause blockage, resulting in accumulation of fluid. Respiratory infections can cause ear infections because of the canal attached from the throat to the ears. To avoid such occurrences, a smoker is advised to stop smoking and treat the other infections that they may have acquired, and the condition can be much better and minimized.
