Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
There are several possibilities that can cause symptoms of ear pain accompanied by a full and shady sensation, which are most often include:
Acute otitis externa, which is inflammation of the external ear, symptoms: severe ear pain when the earlobe is pulled / touched, swollen or reddish in the ear or ear canal, fever, can be accompanied by discharge from the ear; can be related to a history of swimming or the entry of fluids / foreign bodies Serumen prop, which results in the production of glands in the ear that hardens and ear plugs acute otitis media, namely inflammation of the middle ear, symptoms: ear pain, full / blocked sensation, decreased hearing function, fever, fluid can come out of the ear or fever; usually associated with a history of infection in the upper respiratory tract so that it clogs the Eustachian tubes [the connecting channel between the nasopharynx and the middle ear] with accompanying symptoms such as coughing, runny nose and nasal congestion. Foreign bodies in your ear canal are advised to check directly with your doctor or doctor ENT specialists can be evaluated and handled appropriately. The doctor will perform a systematic history about the history of the disease, physical examination of the external ear, then use an otoscope (hearing aid) to examine the deeper parts of the ear.
Efforts to clean the ears themselves may cause the cotton bud that is used actually pushes the earwax deeper and causes the cotton to remain in the ear canal. To prevent this, you should visit a doctor or ENT specialist if you want ear wax to be cleaned. You are advised to avoid the habit of digging your own ear canal and minimize the touch / pull on the ear that hurts. For the time being, you can use over-the-counter pain relievers, for example: paracetamol, at doses according to the rules of use listed on the drug packaging.
