I have right ear congestion (fullness)with tunnitus for 12 days that started as a short lasting ear ache, at the end of a 3 week cold.?
Eustachian tube: ET dysfunction from a cold can create ear congestion or a middle ear fluid problem that can cause temporary hearing loss and/or tinnitus. It usually will respond to medications that decongest such as topical nasal decongestants like Afrin or Neosynephrine; oral decongestants like Sudafed; and topical nasal steroids like Flonase, Nasacort, and Rhinocort, all of which are OTC. See MD if persists. ...Read more

Eustacian tubes: The tube that runs from your middle ear to the back of the throat, if obstructed by swelling due to inflammation will produce ear pain.

Ear Pain: It is likely this is an ear infection. Most physicians feel that treating the pain is the primary goal. This may include antibiotics, although the major cause in viral. The follow up care is important. Have his ear examined to make sure the infection/fluid is resolving to prevent hearing loss. All the best. ...Read more

Sore throat, earache, pain under the ear travelling down face and neck, painful chewing, feeling extremely cold, starting to wheeze and cough?
Hi. I was wondering if I can take non-drowsy allergy relief and nighttime cold and flu? I have a stuffy nose but a headache and ear ache also..
Depends: If your non-drowsy allergy relief contains a decongestant, it may keep you awake although it would provide some relief in your nasal congestion. If it contains just an antihistamine, it would not help your cold but would not keep you awake either. For short term use, an OTC nasal congestant spray may be more effective (not to be used for more than 5 days). ...Read more

I am experiencing sore throat and ear ache (worsened by: air travel) (severity: mild) (quality: throbbing). What can I take I'm currently nursing?
Homeopathy, herbs...: Most sore throats are viral; your earache is likely also related to the sore throat/virus. If you haven't been taking Vit D that is crucial, esp. If nursing, so take 5000 iu of D3/day. Take 1000 mg of Vit C every 2-3 hours. Umcka is a safe herb proven effective for colds, available at health food stores. Try Sovereign Silver- swish with 1 tsp 4x/day. See http://tinyurl. Com/jqms4jy re: homeopathy. ...Read more
My 2.5 yr old daughter has a perforated eardrum. This is the 2nd time first time was in April. Shld I be taking her to an ENT & investigate grommets? Seems to haooen as a result of cold or flu each time with mild ear ache if not perforation.
Confusing question: Perforations happen because the specific germ of a middle ear infection triggers rapid accumulation of germs/debris and pressure pushes through the drum. Any drum with a previous perforation will be weaker & prone to recurrence. You don't put tubes/grommets in a drum with a perforation. A basic rule of 5/yr or continuous infections > 90 days signal to need for ENT. If you want just go. ...Read more
I have a fever 100.2, ear ache and sore throat. My chest hurts when I breath like a burning feeling or soreness. Is this a cold or something else?
Febrile illness: This sounds as if you should go to see a doctor ASAP, either in an ER or an Urgent Care facility.
