today suddenly my right ear hurts a bit. It’s a bit painful, even if I leave it or I press it in the area around the lack of it and the earlobe is a bit sore. Maybe it’s not because of being suppressed for too long while sleeping? Or maybe this is another symptom? Actually, sometimes the right or left ear suddenly buzzes or the ringing has happened many times, but not in close proximity. And from what I remember it happened more often in the car and it was a long trip. Isn’t this dangerous?

Hi Woody, thanks for the question

The pain that you experience around the ear, either by pressing or pulling on the earlobe, most likely indicates an inflammatory process that is taking place in the ear, either in the outer or inner ear. Here are some possible causes:

otitis externa - namely inflammation of the outer ear, either mild (feels like a pimple will grow in the ear canal) or severe (involves the entire structure of the ear canal, often accompanied by complaints of hearing loss) otitis media - inflammation of the middle ear space, can takes place acute or chronic (does not go away or is recurrent) To be sure, it would be nice if you consult directly to an ENT specialist. Through an examination with a special tool, namely an otoscope, the doctor will evaluate each part of the ear. After determining the cause, then the doctor can determine the right treatment, either with topical drugs (ointments or ear drops) or oral tablets. In the meantime, good advice for you:

avoid scratching or picking at the ears, either by hand or cotton buds. Take care not to get water in the ears, especially when bathing and you should avoid swimming until the complaints in the ears are resolved. Take painkillers, such as paracetamol, which can be found over-the-counter at pharmacies. Avoid listening to music or sounds. that are too tight for a long period of time, especially if you use earphones, avoid traveling by plane, where changes in altitude during the trip can increase the pressure in the ear so that it feels more painful Read articles on earaches
