What is the cause and treatment for ear pain? - Online Doctor Chats
how can I help you?
now since last 2 days my right ear is hurting again..
was it the same ear last time as well?
but this time i m sure there was no injury i didnt use ear buds or anytyhnig
ya same ear.
wat could be causing this pain?
it is quite possible that the infection did not clear off completely and must have resurfaced again
but i completed 5 day course of azzee
I would still attribute this pain to your previous infection unless there is a clear sign of something else
That is good, completing the full course of antibiotics is always a good practice
what should i do now?
i am wondering how can this internal injury happen
can you elaborate a bit more about the ear problem
it is hurting especially when i touch inner ear
apart from the pain, do you have any other symptoms at all?
ya pain in the upper jaw linked to ear
even the outer ear that is the side burns area and above ear also
no dental problem
any discharge from the ear?
can you describe the pain?
it is always there
and does this pain get worse when you chew something?
and hurts more when i toch it..
ya when i move my rtight jaw it hurts
is there any swelling in front or behind the ear?
or any redness?
nothing that is noticable
if there is pain when you touch, it implies that the infection is in the external ear
that is the ear canal
or external auditory canal
could it be some insect or smthing?
yes, it is possible
water in the ear?
an injury is not a definitive cause for infection
i mean can it be caused by water going to the ear?
yes, water can also cause infection
particularly because, wet and humid regions in the body are prone to develop fungal infections, which later can get infected with bacteria and cause pain
oh ya XXXXXXX is humid and i m kindo fo prone to these because of my house location etc
My suggestion to you now is, please consult an ENT specialist again
and get your ear looked at
can i take that diclomol tab for pain..
and ask the ENT doctor to do a culture and sensitivity test to identify the bacteria and fungus causing the infection
Yes, you can take diclomol for pan, but that will not cure the problem
you will need antibiotics that will definitely work on the bacteria that is causing the infection
so get a culture and sensitivity done to find out the exact bacteria and to see which antibiotics it is sensitive so that a proper antibiotic can then be prescribed to you
any ear drops that i can use
because doctor will be available XXXXXXX only
right now I would not suggest any ear drops
Doctors will be available on Sundays also
ok thnks for your guidance
is there any other question you would like to ask me?
Looks like you have moved away.
Thank you for using the service
have a good day ahead and get well soon
