Ears Aching And Buzzing, Sometimes Sounds Rumbling?
Hello,. Lately my ears itch, I think because it’s dirty, so I feel I have to clean it with a cotton bud. However, apparently there was no dirt. Itching continued for several days, I couldn’t help but overcome it with a cotton bud too. But afterwards, the inner ear seemed to be chafed. I know when I put my finger in my ear and find dry skin peeling from the ear area. Then, about 2/3 days ago, until now, all parts of the ear to the jaw were aching, painful. The pain was even felt when I chewed food. In addition, the ear seems to be clogged and sometimes buzzing. Please help,. thanks.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of the ear that you experience can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Ear fungus infection or otomycosis
Otitis media conditions
Osteitis external conditions
Accumulation of ear wax or serumen prop
As for the present condition which widens to the jaw, this is indeed possible considering its close position. Indeed, many conditions of ear infections which then spread to the jaw or vice versa. Our advice, you should check your condition with the ENT doctor in order to get further treatment, because it takes a special tool to look into the ear, and if it turns out to get a blockage, it takes a special method.
Meanwhile, do not put anything into the ear including water, and in the future do not clean your ears using a cotton bud because even though there is dirt attached to the tip, the majority is pushed and attached to the ear drum behind. Do not use drugs without doctor's advice and check yourself immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
