I use headphones that cover the ear completely and was wondering if they can get dust mite problems as I have a allergy to dust mitesThanks?

No

Ear
The ear canals are not the site dust mite favors. Their favorite dwelling place is your bed (mattress, pillow, box spring, and even comforter). I hope you have mite-proof encasings on the above items but don't expect miracles even if you have the covers on these items.

Dr. John T. Chiu answered:

I have dust mite allergies and my right ear goes almost deaf is something swelling up or is it fluid buildup Also it tends to happen after headphones?

Not from mites

Allergies
House dust mite allergy may cause nasal congestion and inner ear issue but would not be linked to headphones. Get your ears checked to make sure that earwax is not the issue. I suspect that you have dry earwax which swells up from the sweating after wearing headphone. Let me know if my hunch is right.

How to get parasites out of human ears?

Parasites

Digestive_health
Occasionally Ascaris lumbricoides will come out of ears after climbing up from the GI tract and perforating the eardrum. Are not many other parasites seen in the ear. Most ear parasites are not really classified as parasites at all, meaning they don't meet all the requirements of the genus.

Dr. Tito Vasquez answered:

If scientists can tissue engineer a human ear, when will they be able to engineer a new penis?

Possibly

Ear
Certainly time will tell whether or not organs (such as a penis) can be "re-engineered" since we have the building blocks of that technology now. The greater difficulty is having a new penis act functionally as a native one due to the complex balance of nerves and circulation that causes an erection.

Signs and symptoms of a human worms in the ear?

Itching perhaps

Itch
Interesting question! In my 23 yrs as a doctor I have never seen or heard of worms in the ear! Best to see your physician. If there are worms in there, it would be fairly easy to irrigate them out.

Do not put any chemical in your ear with a perforated drum. Many chemicals are ototoxic and may lead to permanent hearing lost and/or vertigo. See an ENT doctor.
