Hi Rupali,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
You need to consult a good ENT specialist to examine the ear thoroughly and treat accordingly. If there is no previous history of ear discharge it can be a fungal infection which is causing this problem. Regarding the throat pain, it needs an evaluation again to tell you what exactly is causing the throat pain.

Good Luck
Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar

I have a recurring problem with my ears. The skin is flaky, and the ear canals itch terribly. It itches all the way to my ear drum. Also, my ears become impacted all the time. It happens more in the right ear than the left. And I know you aren t supposed to stick foreign objects in there, but it will hurt so badly until I get the clog out. The clogs are white with black around the edges, and look more like plastic almost than earwax. I get vertigo all of the time too. I ve gone to my doctor for it, and he keeps telling me it s swimmers ear, gives me the don t go swimming, dry your ears with a hair dryer on low setting, and the medications for swimmers ear. I take the meds and follow the advice, but it doesn t ever go away. Four years ago, I tore my left eardrum in an accident and had to have it surgically fixed. I m 29, 153 lbs and 4 foot 5 inches. I m allergic to yeast, eggs, codiene, dextromorphathan, zithromycin, penicillen, and amoxicillan. I also work at a state park that is located at the highest point in my state.

I have a history of ear infections & as of present I have consulted ent specialist (initially inflamed & at present oozing) - same been diagonized as otitis externa - tratment being antiinflammatory oral medicnes + anti histamines + fluid been drained out. Note: Regrettably for past 4/5 months I am suffering from purpura (same has lead to severe pigmentation on legs) - all tests: blood/urine/stool/blood pressure etc are indicating normal & treatment being antihistamines - however same has not benifited. Last week onwards I have been put on oral steroids (deflazcort) & goutnil Question: OOzinf from ear has not stopped, in fact it is yellowish in colour and smelly -- Since I am using steroids, what bearing it would have on my ear & suggestive remedies to stop oozing.

My son is 16 months and had tubes put in at 4 mo's old. Since the tubes it seems he has been more sick with ear infections contantly. In the past two months he has had one ear infection followed by a double ear infection and now his ear is bleeding. Is this normal?

I believe that I have ear wax buildup in my ear that has closed the canal. This happened from using a quetip to clean my ears after swimming. I have been doing home treatment (using hydrogen peroxide / water mix for a few days, then debrox for 4 days) and it has worked a little bit, opened up and was able to hear again pretty clearly for a day or two, but then it closed again and opens up about 10% of the day. I don t have the money to go see a doctor and feel this is minor and can be fixed. No pain, no symptoms of infection or problems, just lack of hearing and tinnitus (which goes away when it opens up). So my question is if there is anything else I can try or has it been so long I should absolutely see a doctor?
