Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of ear pain due to air pressure which seems to be due to Eustachian tube dysfunction leading to creation of negative pressure inside ear. Need not to worry. I would suggest you to visit ENT specialist once and get it examined. Avoid pricking it with sharp object. You should put antibiotic drops and canesten drops in ear. Keep ears covered while taking bath, flying and swimming. Take combination of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. Go for ear examination completely and check if any audiometery tests required. Doctor may order blood test , CT scan , MRI or hearing test like audiogram.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari

Hi, I have recently had a cold and have ended up with an ear infection, i am now taking amoxycillin however I was wondering if i could still take my cold and flu tablets as they are a decongestant and feel that they may not only help my blocked nose but possibly my ear as well. I have taken one tablet of the amozycillin as recommended and due to take another however, the stuffiness and pain in my ear has not stopped since last night even after taking the antibiotics. What is the best thing to do, take the cold and flu tablets(which are non drowsy however do have codine in them) and the antibiotics or just take the antibiotics?

I have a chronic painful infection. The longest I have had without pain in 7 years is the past 12 months. About 5 weeks ago the pain returned & I have been taking 150mg Roxithromycin, the pain initially subsided after 3-4 days but has now returned. This problem started after removal of my wisdom tooth, after which I had dry socket & jaw infection. I have seen 3 dentists, 3 Dr s & a maxofacial surgeon. But I cannot get rid of this problem. I am about to travel overseas for 6 weeks & not sure what to do next.

I ve been taking amphotericin B for oral thrush for 3 days now, 10mg x2 daily. The thrush has affected my tongue and the upper back of my mouth and is slowly subsiding. I ve had a an upper respiratory infection (Dr said Bacterial Virus), which has largely died down, the coughing is absolutely minimal now and there s virtually no phlegm. I ve been breathing through my mouth a lot (been sick for 3 weeks) and have had many throat lozenges to cope with the coughing. Have been on Roxithromycin now for 3 days. I ve never been prone to thrush. Have been under a lot of stress - earthquakes in Christchurch, NZ. Ok, my question. Still feeling very tired, unwell and drained. Could this be due to the antifungal drug?
