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 can people get an ear infection?

Inflamation mid/ear

Stringio
Otitis media is a broad term that includes various forms of inflamation of the middle ear. That space is like a cave in the skull, with the ear drum on one wall, a drain tube (eustacion tube) in the floor & another wall composed by the skull & the ear nerve. The walls make mucous which normally drains but can be trapped. Viruses often start the process but bacteria can invade & need treatment.

Can u get shingles in your ear?

Shingles on ear

Eyes
Yes. It can be localized to the outer ear or be a serious problem that causes facial pain, facial weakness and hearing loss. If you have shingles of the ear, you need to see an otolaryngologist and get a hearing test. Shingles present in nerve distributions, so you would also want to be sure that it does not involve the eye if upper part of face is involoved.

Who can I get rid of ear pressure?

Ear pressure

Ear_pressure_
Ear pressure is maintained by constant flow of air through the Eustachian tube which connects the middle to the throat. You can try blowing ballons or blowing through a pinched nose. That action builds pressure within the throat which in turn opens up the Eustachian tubes.
