The Causes And Ways Of Dealing With The Right Ear Are Painful And Sensitive?
Good afternoon want to ask my ears a few days ago the pain was accompanied before I complained of toothache in the molars and then massage on the outside. Now my ear aches are really painful and sensitive to hear other sounds and when I listen to a song using a headset, it hurts, why do you think?
Thank you for the question.
Pain on one side of the ear most often indicates otitis externa, or inflammation of the external ear, from the earlobe to the outer ear canal. This inflammation is generally triggered by a moist ear condition that makes it easy for disease-causing microorganisms to infect and multiply. Not only that, the habit of digging excessive ears, using earphones that are not sterile, also the spread of inflammation from the middle ear, teeth, jaw, and respiratory tract can also trigger this condition. When inflamed, the cells that play a role in sound conduction in your ear can be more sensitive, especially if you hear noise, for example when you wear a headset.
In addition to otitis externa, buildup of earwax, otitis media, tinnitus, jaw joint disorders, lymphadenitis, mastoiditis, migraine, temporal neuralgia, side effects of ototoxic drugs, etc. can also cause pain in the ear.
Ear pain that is very disturbing, you should check with your doctor or ENT specialist to be treated properly according to the cause. Some medications, extraction of earwax, or other investigations, such as a hearing test, may be recommended by your doctor. In the meantime, you should:
Take paracetamol so that the pain in your ear improves
Don't listen to noise
Do not put anything in the ear, including water or cotton bud
Don't swim or dive yet, unless it's been declared safe by a doctor
If you have problems with your teeth, treat them directly to the dentist
Hope this helps ...
