Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically ear pain can be caused by many possibilities, here are some of them:
infection of the outer ear infection of the middle ear hardening of the accumulated cerumen in the ear ear entry of foreign objects (such as insects or small animals) changes in pressure in the middle ear (eg after boarding a plane) pain from other places, such as toothache, peritonsillary abscess, TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) etc. To find out the right therapy for ear pain, of course it must be known in advance the exact cause of the pain. It is better to bring your wife to an ENT doctor so that a direct examination can be made on her ear. ENT doctor who will later provide treatment for your wife, of course, taking into account the condition of your wife's pregnancy. The doctor will give medicines that are safe for pregnancy.
For now, make sure your wife does not pry her ears (with cotton buds, ear scrapers, fingers or nails, or other sharp objects), don't drip certain drops or certain herbs into her ears, don't swim until the doctor allows it , and be more careful when bathing so that no water gets into the ears. To help reduce the pain for a while, your wife can consume pain relievers such as paracetamol which is safe for consumption during pregnancy.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
