Doctor:Please proceed with your query
User:I am having cold and seems like infection has gone to my ear. It pain a bit when I swallow anything. Apart from this, I also generally have a bit of pain in my ears, while I scratch it not normally. Could you please help me with any basic medication to solve this health issue. I have been facing this pain on and off now since 6 months. It is not severe but I am worried why it pains. I do not have any hearing problems.
