Is it to be concern about the swelling and pain in the ear?
I had an earache in my right ear 3 days ago. Yesterday the pain was less in my right ear but my left ear began to ache. I also noticed swelling in front of my ear. Now there are small lumps in front of both ears near the jaw line. I thought it may just be swollen lymph nodes but I also now have one on the left side of my neck, in the middle. There is less pain in my left ear, but constant ringing. Today I have had extra saliva in my throat and not much of an appetite. Should I see a doctor or am I getting over an ear infection? I ve never had an ear ache before. Also my ears had been itching extremely for the past 3 months.
Hi, From history it seems that you might be having fungal infection in ear for 3 months causing itching in the ears. Now there might be having super added bacterial infection giving this problem. You might require one course of antibiotic to cure bacterial infection. Afterwards go for treatment of otomycosis, fungal infection. Do not allow water entering in the ear canal while taking shower. Ok and take care.
