ENT Specialist Dr. Naveen Kumar's  Response
Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
The burning sensation around the ear can be a neuralgic pain, probably trigeminal neuralgia. Your father needs a thorough examination by an ENT specialist/a neurologist.

I have bad allergies and often get ear pain that will subside if I take Aleve-D and wait a few hours. However, I have taken the Aleve-D for two days and my left ear is still sore. It hurts when I touch the back of my left oracle and it feels hot inside my ear (burning sensation). Do you have any idea what this could be?

I have trigeminal neuralgia and suffer from burning itching ear canals along with swelling that comes out like a ball on the side of my left face when I eat and sometimes it comes on with no food. It hurts and stays swollen for hours at a time and once its back down the trigeminal nerves go crazy and I am in severe pain. I have been to the doctor and am like a test subject at this point and frustrated with no answer as to what causes the swelling and the pain. Its not stones and its not cancer. Do you know what this could be?
