I have dry and hard skin in my right ear canal.When I burp, can hear a wooshing sound and feels some blockage in that ear.Please advice me.

Dr. can check ear: Not sure if skin changes in the outer part of the ear canal would be related to "wooshing" sounds. Whooshing sounds are usually due to pressure changes in the middle ear, inside the head, not at the outer ear. Allergies, colds, and other reasons for one's Eustachian tubes to not work well, can lead to whooshing sounds. The skin changes should be looked at during an exam at the doctor's office. ...Read more

Feels like a vein pulsing in ear canal, occurs for a few seconds when burp/hiccup, I can't hear it I just feel it pulse like heart beat uncomfortable.

Otitis w effusion: You may have otitis media w effusion (also called serous otitis) where normal ear drainage & pressure-equalizing systems are blocked. Tho antihistamines or decongestants may relieve some congestion, they are not proven cures. Generally, this clears on its own in 10-12 weeks. See your clinician or ear-nose-throat specialist if worsens, doesn't get better, or you have concerns. Hope that helps. ...Read more

2nd day of sharp pain deep inside ear canal and it hurts to touch on outside by earlobe. What can this be?

2nd day of sharp pain deep inside ear canal and it hurts to touch on outside by earlobe. What can this be?

Outer ear infection: The key to the diagnosis here is that the ear lobe hurts when you move it. I suspect that you have an ear infection within the outer ear canal. Pulling on the earlobe causes pain because it creates traction on the ear canal. An outer ear infection or inflammation is quite common in warm weather or with water exposure. If it gets worse, you will need antibiotic ear drops from a doctor or pharmacy. ...Read more

Inner ear canal pain. Doesn't hurt constantly but often. Sharp. Hurts when push on tragus too. Mostly right eat sometimes both. Flying in 6 days...

Need exam: Your symptoms sound like you might have temporomandibular joint pain dysfunction or TMD. If you can pinch your nose and pop your ears, you should be okay to fly, but you should have someone check you for TMD as this is a very common disorder and it's very treatable. Good luck and happy flying. ...Read more

Why does my ear canal hurt? It hurts to even touch the entrance of it.

Why does my ear canal hurt? It hurts to even touch the entrance of it.

Possibly infection.: Your symptoms sound classic for "swimmer's ear," or otitis externa. (You don't have to swim to get it. Anyone can.) An exam by a doctor can tell for sure. This type of infection is cured by antibiotic ear drops, but it is safest to use only AFTER a medical provider has examined you to make sure your eardrum is healthy first. Please see a doctor! Good luck and feel better! ...Read more

Why after eating a lot of food it causes inner ear to hurt with feeling of pain and pressure deep in the ear canal of both ears?

Ear pain: A bit less common. However, various things may be the cause. Overeating can reflux, depending on how badly and your personal symptoms because the anatomy of the eustachian tubes in the throat acid can actually enter the canals. Tmj, sore jaw joint from simply chewing too much food, may give a sense of ear pain. This isn't straight fwd ; is going to require an exam from your doc. Best luck! ...Read more
