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.

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.

Can fluid get passed your ear drum?

Ear fluid

Weakness
If the eardrum is completely intact, fluid should not get through it. If there is a small hole or perforation, then fluid could certainly get through. Also, some people have small weak areas of the drum that could easily be disrupted to allow fluid to pass. Infection can also erode the ear drum such that fluid can get through. These are all uncommon problems, though.

How can I get my ear to stop ringing?

Diagnosis

Ear
Tinnitus or "ringing in the ear" in most cases can not be cured. However, there are a number of causes that can be controlled. Noise exposure is probably the most common cause. But various types of middle ear and inner ear diseases, if controlled, may relieve the tinnitus. Incidentally, the most likely accepted origin of the sound is arising from the temporal lobe of the brain.
