Pain in the ear, which is felt especially when the auricle is stretched, is most likely due to otitis externa.
Otitis externa occurs when the external ear, which includes the auricle and outer ear canal, is inflamed. The cause of this condition usually occurs related to excessive prying habits, including using a cotton bud. It could also, this condition occurs when the ear is often exposed to high humidity making it easier for fungus and bacteria to enter and multiply and cause infection. Not only pain, due to otitis media, the outer ear canal can also swell, redness, and produce more mucus. It could also, you experience decreased hearing function or tinnitus (ringing in the ears) due to this inflammation.
In addition to otitis externa, it can also be pain in the ear as you experience due to other factors, such as ear infections (such as acne or ulcers), post herpetic neuralgia, lymphdadenitis (inflammation of the lymph nodes around the ears), insect bites on the earlobe , insertion of foreign objects into the ear, accumulation of earwax, otitis media, and so on.
You can check yourself directly to the doctor or ENT specialist doctor to find out what triggers your complaint. Often, just by conducting an external examination, the doctor is able to determine the right treatment. If it is true that your complaint occurs due to otitis externa, this condition usually improves simply by giving ear drops or adding some other medication.
At this time, you can first do these steps:
Take the medicine for paracetamol as a temporary pain reliever. Keep the ears dry and not to infiltrate foreign objects (including insects and water). Do not pry over the ears. Don't use excessive head sets.
