Overcoming Pain In The Ears That Spread To The Jaw And Head?
my wife’s right ear ache on Monday was treated with amoxciline, Paracetamol, and loratadine he said inflammation of the ear hurts now the flu is cured improved medicine is almost gone but the earache is still even complaining of pain especially when going to sleep how about that? the right ear ache feels inside the jaw and the head also aches above the ear
Thank you for the question.
Pain that appears in the ear area, until it feels up to the jaw and head can indeed occur one of them due to inflammation of the ear. Inflammation of the ear can occur in the external ear (otitis externa) or the middle (otitis media). But if your wife has had a cold before, then it is likely that experienced is otitis media. Inflammation in the airways, including those characterized by colds, is indeed susceptible to spread to the middle ear because they are connected through a special channel called the Eustachian tube. In addition to pain, otitis media can also make the ear feel full, hearing is impaired, even the eardrum can tear so as to make the ears secrete abnormally and smell bad.
The condition of your wife who still feels annoying pain should be checked by a doctor or ENT doctor. Could be, this pain arises because of healing diseases that have not been optimal. Or it could be, actually the complaint arises because of other triggers, such as Meniere's disease, migraine, nerve disorders, jaw joint disorders, parotitis, pharyngitis, and so on.
In the meantime, you can help reduce complaints first by:
Give your wife paracetamol so that the pain subsides Let her also get plenty of rest Avoid her from excessive exposure to noise Encourage her to not pry or put anything in her ears Give her plenty to drink water, and eat a variety of foods rich in vitamin C Hope it helps ya ..
