Suggest treatment for ear infection

Hi, I m 15, 5 0, 220 lbs, and I ve got numerous medical issues. I ve got osteochondroma, HBP, nerve problems, Chrone s disease, and IBR. I don t know if this will help any, but it says I should include it. About two years ago, I got a really bad ear infection, and I was given medicine and ear drops and it got all better. But now I continually get ear infections about every two weeks. And my ear drops are making my ear and jaw numb, and I can t hear out of my ear almost at all. I have no idea what it is, but I d like to know if anyone has an idea of what it may be and if I should go to my doctor over it, or go to a specialist.

Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

Your symptoms seem to be related to an ear infection.
I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the inflammation.
I also suggest using an antibiotic ear drop for local application.
If the symptoms continue, oral antibiotics may be needed.
So,you should consult an ENT specialist for further evaluation.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
