Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
When viewed from your explanation, it is possible that the burning sensation in your neck area occurs due to the following reasons:
Inflammation spreads from ear to throat
Please note, between the middle ear and the throat is connected by a channel, which is called the Eustachian tube. This channel has an opening from the middle ear to the nasopharynx, which is the segment of the throat that lies behind the nasal cavity. Inflammation in the middle ear area, if not treated properly, can spread to the throat. This inflammation of the throat can cause various sensations, including itching, pain, heat, phlegm, and so on, which are felt especially around the neck.
Drug side effects
Some of the drugs you take, in sensitive people, are known to trigger an increase in stomach acid. In more severe conditions, this stomach acid can reflux (backflow) to the esophagus, which is located in the neck area. As a result, irritation can occur which often feels like itching, pain, stinging, heat, tightness, to other complaints, such as palpitations, cold sweat, weakness, and so on. In the medical realm, this condition is called GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease).
Other causes (not always related to otitis media and drugs consumed), for example due to skin infections (for example, Herpes zoster), irritant contact dermatitis, insect bites, pleurisy (inflammation of the lining of the lungs), excessive screaming, heart attacks, panic attacks , etc
Is the complaint really annoying? If so, you should check with your doctor or ENT specialist again ... Bring the medicines you are currently taking and show them to your doctor for evaluation, whether there are drugs that need to be stopped, or maybe added with other drugs so that less side effects. If your complaint is suspected that it is not due to drugs, the doctor may also recommend several other tests to determine the correct diagnosis, for example ultrasound, endoscopy, and so on.
At this point, what you should do is:
Drink lots of warm water
Compress the neck area that feels hot with cold water
Not being sad, anxious, panicking, or excessively afraid
Do not take drugs carelessly, unless the doctor prescribes them directly
Don't eat too much, eat small portions, but often
Do not lie down immediately after eating
Stay away from cigarettes and alcohol
Hope it helps ..
