ETD: Eustachian tube dysfunction the natural pressure equalizing tubes in your ear are failing during descent. You can try to pop ears with gum and blowing out. Check with your primary doctor to see if you could be okay taking afrin (oxymetazoline) prior to take off/landing which will help open your nose and also your ear tubes. Also, my patient swear by a product called "earplanes". I can't recommend them though. ...Read more

Needs a recheck: Taking an antibiotic for an ear infection does not protect into the future. If he is symptomatic again, he may have another infection. The only way to know is to have his doctor examine him. In the meantime, use Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen as tolerated for pain. ...Read more

36 yo female with right ear pain for 2 days (no fever, drainage or other symptoms). History of ear infections as adult and child. I take azathioprine for crohn's. Should i go to doctor or wait?

Any hearing loss: The first question i ask a patient with ear ache (otalgia) is if there is any hearing loss associated with pain. If there is no hearing loss and particularly if the pain is in front of the ear, i would be thinking tmd. This could be joint disease, muscle spasm or referred pain to the side of the face (ear) from dental disease as the other reviewer suggested. ...Read more

Talk to his doctor: Frequent ear infections such as more than 6 times/year may be an indication for T &A (tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy), particularly if he has hearing loss due to the frequent ear infection. For each episode of infection, an antibiotics such as Amoxicillin should work, if not, a very high dose Amoxicillin could be tried. At any rate, I think yuou need to discuss this issue with your child's doctor ...Read more

Look in the ear first: You can buy a cheap otoscope at the pharmacy and looked directly in the ear at the eardrum. For a three-year-old I would wonder first of all do they have an infection. Then I would have a question of a foreign body. So I suggest you don't put anything in his ear until you know what the air looks like. ...Read more

I had grommets inserted when i was 5 three times and now as a adult i get sharp inner ear pain that usually last to a minute. Is this normal?

Not from the tubes: Very unlikely the ear pain you are getting has anything to do with the tubes you had as a child. Most like cause is strain of the tempromandibulr joint(tmj). Try motrin, soft diet for a week and don't chew gum, ice, etc. Try to chew opposite the side that hurts. If this doesn't work, see your physician. ...Read more

Child ear pain?

Child ear pain?

Ear Pain Child: Ear pain is extremely common in childhood and although it is distressing, is usually caused by a minor infection that will resolve on its own. It can be VERY painful, due to pressure inside the ear drum so treating with pain killers like paracetamol +/- ibuprofen is the main treatment. If fevers and pain are ongoing for more than 3 days, then we sometimes advise antibiotics. ...Read more
