What causes ear infection on outer ear?
external ear infection.
Hi, thanks for your query. In my opinion, you might be having infection of the outter ear.
This can occur because of use of qtip tip, nail injury, hot humid climate etc.
If I were your treating doctor, I would have prescribed penicillin antibiotics + anti inflammatory medicines for 5 to 7 days.
All these are prescription medicines, so I would advise you to consult with the doctor, and discuss my views with him.
Hope my answers have helped you. Thanks.
No sinus infection or ruptured ear drum.
Hi, thanks for your follow up query.
Inmy opinion, sinus infection causes middle ear problems of ear block and ear pain. But doesn't cause hot ears. .
ruptured ear drum occurs because of 4 reasons.
1. Q - tip injury
2. Tight slap over the cheek.
3. Head injury.
4. Middle ear infection.
Rupture of ear drum must be assessed clinically.
As per your symptoms of ear pain, hot ears with fever i feel probably you might have external ear infection.
Empirically you can take anti inflammatory medicines like paracetamol + diclofenac combination drugs.
I would advise you to consult with the doctor and get tested and discuss my views with him.
Pleased to help you further.
