Pain That Feels Mainly In The Area Behind The Ear?
In the morning, I want to ask why sometimes on the inside of the back of my left ear sometimes it hurts especially after eating greasy food. sometimes I give a new painkiller, but sometimes it appears again. thank you
Thank you for the question.
Pain that is felt primarily in the area behind the ear can be caused by various factors, for example:
Inflammation of the skin, such as infection, bitten by an insect, contact dermatitis Mastoiditis (inflammation of the bones in the back of the ear) Lymphadenitis (inflammation of the lymph nodes) Otitis externa or media (inflammation of the outer or middle ear) Other factors, such as migraine, trigeminal neuralgia, joint disorders jaw, brain tumor, metabolic disorders, torticollis, nerve nerve, cavities, dental abscesses, pharyngitis, etc. This pain is not always dangerous. However, if the pain recurs quite often or appears with great intensity, you should stay alert. Go to see your doctor for proper evaluation and treatment. If deemed necessary, maybe the doctor will recommend that you undergo a supporting examination (such as x-rays, CT scans, blood tests) or also refer you to the right specialist doctor (such as ENT doctor, internal medicine, nerves, etc.).
As an initial effort, the pain that appears can you reduce first by taking paracetamol and warm compresses behind the area of your ear that pain. Do not forget, multiply rest, improve personal hygiene, do not stress excessively, and do not also over-massage the painful area.
Hope this helps ...
