Pain In The Ear After Getting In Water While Swimming?
2 days ago I was swimming and water caught my ear, but after I got home I even cleaned it with an ear plug and after that it got even more uncomfortable. And then I bought ear drops, but after using it my ears hurt even more. Is that the effect of the drug or why? Please answer thank you
Hello, thanks for the question
Pain that is complained of in your ear can be caused by:
irritation due to the friction of a matchstick in the ear canal ear canal infection caused by bacteria, which can be diffuse otitis externa or furunculous otitis externa. medicine or not. So you should stop using the drug and consult a general practitioner or an ENT specialist for further examination.
The doctor will examine the condition of your ear using an instrument called an otoscope to see more clearly the condition of your ear canal. For now, avoid putting anything in your ear and avoid swimming until your ear heals.
