ENT Specialist 's  Response
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

ENT Specialist Dr. Jyothi Kumari's  Response
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
ENT Specialist Dr. Puneet Maheshwari's  Response

You are suffering from Acute Suppurative Otitis Media.

Follow these--

1- tab amoxyclav 625 mg three times a day.
2- Take some anti inflamatory, antiallergic, decongestant tablet like sinarest three times a day.
3- antibiotic ear drop.
4- AVOID water entry in ears.


dont worry u will be all rite.

usually ear pain occurs when there is accumulation of wax in the ear dont try to put ear buds as u may damage ur tympanic membrane try using hydrogen peroxide solution for 2-3 times a day if it is wax..........

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.

I am a 23 year old female. I have several different problems and I am unsure if they are related. Here is a list of my symptoms: - Chronic constipation/diarrhea - Mucus in feces - Never feeling fully empty after defecating - Bloating and gas - Hemmeroids - Pain in lower left side of back. The pain comes and goes, but when it is there, I am incapacitated because it hurts so bad. (I have seen a gastrointestinal specialist who did an unltrasound on my stomach and inserted a tube into my anus to see if I had any abnormalities, but she said I was fine and normal. She said she didn t see any reason for the pain in my back. She put me on laxatives and several herbal meds that didn t help. She said that my constipation might be due to stress in my life (which I have a ton of for the last few years). - Chronic ear infections (I have been treated with anitbiotics. The pain goes away for a short time and then comes back again. Have had this problem for about 2 years.) - Chronic mucus in the back of my throat (experienced this for the last 4-5 months) - Bronchitis and coughing up the mucus which appears exactly like snot in both consistency and color (a little over a month now) - Crusty morning eyes with mucusy stuff in them (3 or 4 months) - Chronic painful burning sensation during intercourse. The pain begins immediately while inserting and does not stop, but lessens when movement ceases. It lasts for a half hour to an hour afterwards and I am unable to repeat intercourse for at least 24 hours because I am so sore. I have been experiencing this since resuming intercourse following the birth of my child 2 years ago and I had already had a IUD inserted for birth control at my 6 week check-up. I had it removed after 6 months because of constant bleeding. I am currently taking birth control pills. I have had a few vaginal infections and A few UTI s since then, but not consecutively. I have not seen a doctor about this specific problem. My husband and I are monogomous and have never had any other sexual partners so STD s are not a possibility. Please tell me what I may have wrong with me and if any of these symptoms could be related. Thanks.
