What can I do to help drain and clear out my ears ?

I went to bed last night with my right ear aching, my first ear infection since I was a kid. At four in the morning I woke up and my ear was really hurting and both my eyes were filled with puss, I couldn t open my right eye. I feel much better now but both my eyes have been blood red all day and my hearing is really off, music sounds like it is underwater and voices have this strange alien high pitched echo. What can I do to help drain and clear out my ears?

Hi,
You have acute infection in your right ear and through Eustachian tube infection spread to your both eyes giving rise to pus and redness in your eyes.
You consult your doctor and seek his advise.
One course of antibiotic,anti inflammatory medicines and local use of eye and ear drops will give you relief.

Last night I went to bed, and within a few minutes I felt an almost flush feeling in my ear. I got up to look in the mirror and had blood running down the side of my face coming from my ear. I tried to clean it and soaked up approx. 10-15 q tips, before it seemed to be clean. Went back to bed within 5 minutes it happened again, mire blood running from ear. If I put a q tip in my ear now there is still some bood but not as much as before. I haven t had any injury, haven t been exposed to loud noise, no flights, scuba, swimming or other pressure or temp changes. Was not picking or cleaning it, and only used q tips after it started bleeding.Also no pain, although now does feel a bit like I have been swimming and got water in my ear but I haven t. Any idea what might be causing this? Thank you in advance for an help -Maggie

Hi, I m a 38 year old mother of two daughters (aged 3 and 5) and I have tiny ears - they never grow, infact my three year old s ears are the same size as mine now. Whenever I go on an aeroplane I have absolutely agonising ear pain - nothing pops to clear the build up of pressure like the majority of people have and it gives me a terriblble headache and ear ache and brings me to tears. I do have a high pain threshold (I gave birth naturally twice) but nothing helps this pain. Is it connected and is there anything I can do?

My two year old got her ears pieced in march. We cleaned them properly for the first 7 weeks. She had no issues. A few days ago I noticed dry crusty scaley skin around the back of her ear in a ring right around the hole. I peeled it off with tweezers. It didn t seem to bother her. The front of her ear looks fine. I have been back to cleaning them twice a day since I noticed it, but the back of the one ear looks really inflamed in the afore mentioned area and in a spot where the ear meets the back of her head. Is it an infection or some type of excema and how should we treat it??

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?
