Hello, thanks for your inquiry to HealthReplies.com. Before explaining further, you need to know the structure of the ear first.

The structure of the ear starting from the outermost is:

1. Earlobe, serves to capture sound.

The external ear canal functions to transmit sound.

3. The eardrum, this organ vibrates to transmit sound.

4. The middle ear space, which contains the auditory ossicles, receives eardrum vibrations and transmits them.

5. Eustachian channel, which is a channel that connects the middle ear space with the nasal cavity.

6. The inner ear space, serves to receive sound stimuli and transmit to the auditory nerve.

The types of diseases related to the ear are:

1. Ear infections, mostly preceded by a history of piercing.

2. External ear canal infection. Risk factors include frequent intake of water, frequent use of headsets, ear picking habits.

3. Middle ear space infection. Infection usually begins with an infection in the nasal cavity (history of cough and cold). Germs will crawl up through the eustachian tube to reach the middle ear. If the infection gets worse, it can cause the eardrum to leak.

4. Infection of the inner ear space. This is a continuation of middle ear infection. Symptoms of vertigo / spinning dizziness are more prominent.

We advise you to consult an ENT specialist immediately. Most likely the doctor will need to examine your ear directly to determine the type of disease. Each possible disease that has been described has a different treatment and not all of them are allowed to board an airplane if it has not been treated.

When you get on an airplane, there is a change in air pressure between the outside air and the middle ear space. The eustachian tube serves to balance the pressure of the two chambers. If there is an infection in the middle ear space, the function of the eustachian tube is disturbed, therefore the type of ear disease that you are currently suffering from needs to be ascertained first.

We advise you to avoid cold eating and drinking, as well as being in too cold a room while you are sick.

So our explanation, hopefully useful, thank you.
