Clogged Sinuses: It sounds like you have an ear or sinus infection which could be viral or bacterial (less common). If you have a fever and /or tenderness over your cheek bones or forehead see a doctor now. This could also be seasonal allergies and an over the counter allergy/sinus medicine might help. One of the best ways to open clogged sinuses is to use saline washes, see netti pot. ...Read more

Hi I an 29 year old male I have a dry tongue in the back left side for almost a year now and mild ear pain some times.?

Examination: You should have a qualified professional examine your tongue and tonsilar area for anything causing such a specific question. Ear pain may be related or not. In fact many people complain of ear pain when it is really adjacent tissue, such as their TMJ (jaw joint) causing their pain. I suggest scheduling an exam asap. ...Read more

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

Over the past few days I been having tooth and jaw pain its mild and I have an ear pain during the day and night could something be writing?

YES!: Pain &/or bleeding &/or swelling are red flags that there is something dramatically wrong. A small cavity is painless, a large deep cavity is painful as the infection spreads. Don't wait. Call your Dentist now. Could be transient like an erupting wisdom tooth, or could be something chronic and serious. Go for an examination. ...Read more

1 day ago found 4 yo sucking on a AA battery. Tiny dent marks but not broken. No burns. Today mild fever. Related? Should mention he has cold, ear pain

While no one would: ...recommend a AA battery for a pacifier, it's good that s/he didn't swallow it. The fever, cold & earache are unrelated to it. Give your young one Children's Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen for fever & ear ache & make sure s/he get adequate fluids. If the pain is severe, the fever high or there are other worrisome symptoms, s/he should be seen by a doctor. My best to all of you! ...Read more

I'm suffering from severe cold and mild fever 99.2f including headache and ear pain for past 4days. Consult 2 doctors but still im not recovered.

I'm suffering from severe cold and mild fever 99.2f including headache and ear pain for past 4days. Consult 2 doctors but still im not recovered.

Be patient: The average common cold lasts 7-10 days and can have significant fever. If you've ben sick 4 days, I would not expect you to feel better yet. Colds are caused by viruses, and there is no cure. Your immune system has to get over the infection on its own. Medicines can be helpful for symptoms, but they will not make the illness resolve any faster. Get plenty of rest, stay hydrated, feel better! ...Read more

Onset of infection: Sounds like a throat infection is setting up. The painful nodes are a good sign that your immune system is responding to try and fight the infection, whether it is viral of bacterial. Since it doesn't sound like you are getting much better after 5 days, you need to be checked for strep throat and take antibiotics if you are positive.
