Hi Julia,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Exposure to excessive noise can indeed trigger ear pain. This condition can occur when you hear a sound with a very loud intensity suddenly, or it can also occur when you hear a sound with a lower intensity but for a long period of time. This condition can cause pain due to excessive propagation of vibrations from the eardrum. In quite extreme conditions, exposure to this noise can also cause eardrum rupture, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and even permanent deafness.

In addition to excessive noise exposure, the ear pain you are experiencing can also be exacerbated by the following factors:

Otitis externa (inflammation of the outer ear)
Cerumen impacta (earwax buildup)

Otitis media (inflammation of the middle ear)
Ear skin infections, eg due to folliculitis, acne, herpes zoster
The entry of foreign objects, such as insects
Barotrauma (e.g. from diving too deep, boarding an airplane)

Sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities)

Migraine (primary throbbing headache caused by abnormal blood vessels in the head)
Ototoxic drug side effects
Temporal neuralgia, and so on

The danger or not of the condition you experience depends on the cause of the pain. If the pain is only mild in intensity, lasts for a short time, and is not accompanied by other symptoms, such as hearing loss or abnormal ear discharge, your condition is generally not dangerous. However, if the pain recurs very often, you should immediately go to an ENT specialist for further evaluation, for example through otoscopy, x-rays, CT scans, hearing function tests, and so on.

At this time, you can first do the following efforts:

Avoid excessive noise exposure, including listening to music through hands free

Use ear plugs when in a noisy environment
Don't scratch your ears too much
Prevent foreign objects from entering the ear
Take paracetamol to reduce pain

Hope it helps ya..
