Can Cavities Cause Ear Prickling?
,, I want to ask ,, can cavities cause the inner ear to feel prickling ??? Because it’s been 4 days my inner ear feels like prickling …
Hello, good night Nabila.
Ear pain like prickling can be caused by a variety of conditions including:
buildup of wax (earwax)
middle ear infection
impaired function of the eustachian tube, which is the tube that connects the inner ear and nasopharynx (the area between the nose and throat). This disorder can be caused due to untreated respiratory infections, allergies to the airways, sinusitis, etc.
nerogenic otalgia, namely ear pain caused by neurological disorders
abscess (a pocket of pus) on the tooth, a hole in the tooth, or a growth disorder in the molar (molar)
To determine whether the ear pain you are experiencing is really due to cavities or other reasons, it is necessary to have an immediate examination. We recommend that you check with an ENT specialist to be sure. The doctor will conduct questions and answers regarding complaints, perform general and specific physical examinations of the ears, nose and throat. Generally no additional examination is required, but if deemed necessary, the doctor may suggest additional examinations in the form of X-rays and so on. If the results of the direct examination show that the cause is from a cavity (or other dental disease) that you are experiencing, the doctor will refer to the dentist for further examination. While waiting for the doctor's appointment, if the pain really bothers you, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as paracetamol, for a while. Avoid scratching your ears and putting any objects in your ears ...
That's all, hope it helps
