Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Complaints of pain that you experience can be transfer pain. The source of pain can come from the ear or head. Some diseases that can be related to your complaint, including:
1. Dermatitis, which is inflammation of the scalp that can be caused by scratching due to head itching due to dandruff or head lice.
2. Otitis externa, which is inflammation of the skin of the ear canal which can be caused by friction when scratching the ear or entering a foreign object (most often it is an insect).
3. Peripheral neuropathy, namely disorders of the peripheral nerve vessels that innervate the scalp and ear canal. Can be caused by inflammation due to infection and non-infection.
You can reduce pain complaints that arise by taking over-the-counter painkillers, such as Paracetamol. Avoid picking your ears and scratching the skin that feels sore and itchy. For complaints of dizziness you can try to overcome it by eating and then resting for a while. Dizziness can occur due to eating late or fatigue.
Try asking the closest family to pay attention to the condition of the scalp and ears that hurt. If the complaint does not improve with the tips above or there are angry sores on the skin, especially if accompanied by signs of bacterial infection (ie festering), try to consult a doctor nearby. So that checks can be done to find out the cause. Appropriate treatment is based on the cause of the disease.
Thus hopefully useful.
