Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Decreased hearing ability can occur due to nerve damage, disorders of the organ that deliver sound waves (ear canal, eardrum, hearing bones, etc.) or a combination of both. Here are some ear diseases related to complaints of decreased hearing ability accompanied by ear pain that you experience, namely:
1. Serumen prop, which is ear wax that hardens and covers the ear canal.
2. External otitis, which is inflammation of the external ear.
3. Chronic otitis media or contamination, where the eardrum has ruptured previously so that the middle ear which should not be exposed to the environment and be sterile becomes exposed to the outside environment causing easy infection due to bacteria.
4. And others.
Because there are many possible ear diseases that can occur, you should consult with an ENT specialist directly. Your doctor will interview you in detail to explore your current and past related medical history, explore possible causes and risk factors for complaints, explore habits and work and other information needed. If you are or have worked in a noisy place, perhaps this is the cause of the decline in your ability to hear. Meanwhile, if you have the habit of digging the ears, this might cause the earwax to push inward so that it collects and hardens in the ear canal. And many other possibilities. The doctor will also do a hearing test on your ear, such as a tuning fork test, audiometry and other tests that are needed. Later the treatment to be undertaken is based on the cause of the underlying illness in your complaint. Meanwhile, you can take over-the-counter painkillers such as paracetamol to ease pain symptoms. However, if the pain is felt strong enough to interfere, you can immediately go to the nearest clinic.
Thus hopefully useful.
