Hi Rachel,
Welcome to HCM.
Pain in the ear could be due to infection. I think you should not wait till June 2nd otherwise it will become worse and cause more damage.

Hi Welcome to Health care magic

if the pain in the ear is severe , discharge from it is pus, fever or decreased hearing then you need to consult immediately otherwise.. continue with the given ear drops and consult on the appointed date.. avoid of entry of water into the ear, swimming, etc.. maintain the ear clean and dry..

My right ear has been bothering me for the last few days. At first I thought it was a zit because when I pressed on it fluid came out. The pain is deep into my ear. It looks red inside and is causing an unbareble headache. Is this a ear infection? Which kind? And should I seek medical attention for it to go away?

Ok so i went to the doctor because i throught i had a sinus infection because my jaw was hurting along with my hears and my sinuses were all messed up. They gave me antibiotics with a nasal spray , i am done with the antibiotics but didnt use the nasal spray and my jaw still really hurts its in the back by my ears. i feel like my hears may need to pop like when you have been in a plane from the pressure but they wont pop. its like a full feeling and my jaw is killing me! i feel really swollen but idk what it is or what to do....i dont think its my wisdom teeth because i can still eat and it doesnt hurt, its not inside my mouh its just my jaw and ears, i kinda dont think it could be an ear infection they hurt sometimes but theres no drainage or anything, the last thing i can think of is it could be TMJ but idk i dont think there has been any fractures or stress to the jaw. Anyways does anyone know? thanks for you help!

my 7 month old was very unhappy yesterday and cried a lot. This morning I noticed that her right ear has a lot of wax which has dried and crusted in the outer ear. There were also yellow patches on her cot sheet which I presume was wax. When I went to touch the ear today she complained, should I assume this is an ear infection and will it heal itself or do I need to see a doctor tomorrow?
