Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of boils, swelling, and sometimes accompanied by pain and ringing in the ears are some of the symptoms of inflammation or infection of the outer ear canal. Some conditions or diseases with similar symptoms are otitis externa (circumskripta and difusa), abscesses, and sebaceous cysts. These diseases often occur because the ears are often scraped or cleaned using hands or tools that are not sterile and can hurt the ear canal, such as cotton buds, safety pins, toothpicks, and others. In addition, there are also other diseases that are less common, such as hemangiomas, ceruminomas, or keloids.
In mild conditions, these diseases generally resolve on their own within a few days to weeks if the patient's immune system is in good condition, and there are no new wounds or irritations. But if the infection cannot be treated by the body's immune system, it may require additional drugs, both anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, anti-fungal, etc. (according to the cause). The things you can do now are:
For a while, do not pry the ears using anything, because in addition to injuring the ear, it can also accumulate ear wax on the inside until it hardens and is difficult to remove. If you feel you have a lot of earwax, or have decreased hearing, check with an ENT doctor. Maintain cleanliness of the external ears that you can rinse while bathing or washing your face, and hand hygiene while maintaining nutritional and fluid needs are met. If you feel pain in the ear that interferes with your activity or rest, you can try taking over-the-counter pain medications at the dosage shown on the package. If your symptoms do not improve for several days or even worsen, I suggest to immediately consult a ENT specialist doctor, so that the conditions and causes of your disease can be ascertained, and given the appropriate treatment, because each disease has a different treatment, especially in pregnancy.
Thus, hopefully can help.
