Hello Diana Juliani, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer the questions that you give.
Ear pain is something most people have experienced. These complaints are also too common and occur in many diseases. Due to the limited data that I get from the story that you tell me, I can't be sure of what you experienced, but some of the possibilities that can happen to you are as follows:
Otitis externa. - Inflammation of the ear canal, which is usually caused by a bacterial infection. In addition to pain usually get sensations such as full ears.
Acute otitis media. - Inflammation that occurs in the middle ear. This occurs due to disruption of the channel that connects the middle ear and throat so that bacteria are trapped. In addition to pain complaints that will arise are fever, and decreased hearing.
Pericondritis. - Inflammation of the ear cartilage, this happens usually due to trauma or continuous depressed ear.
To ensure that you must consult a doctor directly, because you need a more complete history taking, examination of your ear, and if needed a supporting examination can be done in accordance with the indications found.
Right now all you have to do is:
Avoid prying your ears.
Don't pry the ears too often / too rarely.
Avoid smoking, and alcohol consumption.
Drink enough water.
Get enough rest, and eat nutritious foods to increase your immunity.
That's all the answers I can give, thank you very much :)
