Earache, headache, crawling sensation in scalp. Allergic to penicillin. Suggest?
I have terrible earache since last year went to doctor and was given antibiotics in Early January. I am alergic to penicilin so therefore had to have a different type of antibiotic which in turn was too strong for my tummy! so discontinued use. The pain is travelling to my head ( side, back and top) and at times is excrutiating i also have a crawling sensation under my scalp and an almost raw feeling. What on earth is the problem ? Is it stress?
The earache needs to be evaluated. I suggest examination by a ENT Specialist to see for any local ear infection. May be X RAY Mastoid is advisable as well. if there is no significant problem with above evaluations then one needs consideration of doing MRI Brain to look for intracranial pathology as you mention that your pains are excruciating some times. This kind of headaches should not be ignored.
