Sounds like you are: Pinching one of the superficial nerves around the ear. Try not wearing the beanie for several weeks and using looser earphones or earbuds for a few weeks. Maybe it will be better when you try wearing them down the road. ...Read more

It usually affects other areas as well. Make sure nothing is putting pressure on the ear and that you don't stay in the cold. It might help to get some warming earmuffs and use those little hunting heating pads inside. ...Read more

Get checked!: Severe ear pain is not normal. You could have an infection. Pain to touch often means an infection of the external canal, but not always. Treatment is needed. Remember put no Q-tips, bobby pains, paper clips etc The only thing that you should put in your ear is your elbow or a piano! (An old and honorable and trusty medical truism.) Don't blow your nose hard for now. ...Read more

Not normal: If you have tenderness, warmth are redness you should see a physician, it sounds like you might have an infection (swimmer's ear is an infection of the ear canal tissue). Areas that have been recently pierced and are not treated aseptically are prone to infection. Good luck! ...Read more
