Dear Mr Ved Prakash Hello I am Dr Sharma ENT surgeon. On the basis of information provided it appears u are suffering form a disease of ear(wax in ear, fungal infection of ear, suppurative infection of middle ear, foreign body in ear etc ) or referred pain in ear { throat, oral cavity or pharynx or larynx(voice box) have common innervation with ear so disease in these areas can be a cause of pain in ear } . You will require an ENT consultation so that we can actually come to the diagnosis.I hope this answers your concern Do let me know if you need more info with regards Ravinder Sharma

there are 3 possibilities1..Acute otitis media,especially if u have upper respiratory infection.2.External Otitis if there is pain on touching the ear or wax in ear and..3.The pain may be in the joint in front of your ear..if it is worse on biting and eating food.For the last you need a drug like brufen400 3 times daily for 3 days and an anti-inflammatory ointment like Voveran gel followwed by hot fomentation.For 2,you need ear drops and the same painkiller.For the 1st condition,antibiotics with brufen and aNasal drops for 5 days is essential with an antiallergic tablet at nightNasal drops are to be followed by steam inhalation..
you should be allright if you can do this as suggested.

i also suffered this problem. you know we tried all measures. like putting warm oil in the ear and all but no effect, plugging the ear with cotton is not a good option as it will not help only. even after plugging we get the pain and than come back home and warm the ear with a lightened candle. than also we used to suffer pain. i have one brilliant idea. this as worked for me. buy rider glass that is transperent as sunglass kinds will not help in dim light.try using it. it has worked for me. it should completely cover the eyes. try and see

2- Take some anti inflamatory, antiallergic, decongestant tablet like sinarest three times a day.
3- antibiotic ear drop.
4- AVOID water entry in ears.

hi,the causes of ear ache pain are: Swimming - when you swim without ear plugs and this allows the water to enter your ear canal. There are different bacteria in the pool from all the other users of the pool. This water get into you ear and causes ear infection and you will need ear pain relief. Common cold - this can cause pressure to build up in the ears, causing ear ache pain relief. Injured part of the body that is related to the ear, like a tooth ache, can cause headache pain.Why dont u see a ENT specialist and treated.
