I have very sore right ear, painful when I swallow and top of skull is sensitive to touch. Also have sporadic acute shooting pains in same ear. ?

Need exam: Difficult to say without an exam. However, the two most likely ear problems are external otitis (infection of ear canal) and otitis media (infection of the middle ear). If your ear is painful with manipulation, it's probably external otitis. Treat with 50:50 solution of vinegar and alcohol. Just squirt it in the ear, and allow it to drain naturally. Repeat 3-4 times per day. ...Read more

I have a sore  right ear and i'm sore down tge right side of my throat especially when i swallow.What could this be and is there any home remedies?

Referred pain: There are shared nerves that go from the throat to the ear and from the jaw joint ("tmj") to the ear. It can be confusing to know where the ear pain is coming from: the ear, the throat or the jaw. In a 16 year old this is most likely a throat infection or tmj. If you have fever or have trouble swallowing, you should see a doctor. Otherwise try some Ibuprofen for 1-2 days before seeing an md. ...Read more
