The Cause Of The Right Ear Ache So Difficult To Sleep?
Tonight. I want to ask that my ears hurt so much … until I cried crying in pain for the past 2 weeks.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Pain in the ear can be caused by many possibilities, here are a few of them:
inflammation and infection of the external ear (otitis ekterna)
inflammation and infection of the middle ear (otitis media)
buildup of hardened earwax
pressure changes in the middle ear (for example due to flight or diving)
a foreign body in the ear
infection of the teeth or infection of the throat and tonsils
disorders of the temporomandibular joint (joints between the upper and lower jaw)
If indeed the pain you feel is very heavy, you should immediately consult a ENT doctor for further evaluation and management. Management must always be adjusted to the main cause of pain, therefore these causes must be sought first by direct examination of the ear.
For the time being, you can try to compress the outside of your ear with warm compresses and take pain medications such as paracetamol. Don't pry your ears with anything, including cotton buds, ear scrapers, fingers and nails, or other sharp objects.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
