When I dig my right ear, it bleeds a little. What does this mean? I had it cleaned and used mometasone furoate topical solution USP. 1%

When I dig my right ear, it bleeds a little. What does this mean? I had it cleaned and used mometasone furoate topical solution USP. 1%

Too much digging,,,: This might just be from too vigorous digging/cleaning that took away too much skin in there. Your fingernails might be too long or you might've rubbed too hard if you used an object like a Qtip, etc. As for that solution, it's supposed to reduce inflammation and likely isn't responsible for the bleeding/rash unless you have an allergy. If it persists without scratching, see your Doctor. ...Read more

Really bad ear pain from sleeping on it. Any solution?

Really bad ear pain from sleeping on it. Any solution?

TMD: Sleeping on the ear should make you suspicious of inflammation of the jaw joint. It is remarkable that most people do not think of the jaw and jaw muscles as a source of pain. I tell my patients to think of their ear as being on top of their heads, and then ask them what their complaint is. Only then do they realize that at the side of the face is the jaw joint, the jaw muscles and the teeth. ...Read more

You could start with your primary care physician for that one. Be well. ...Read more

Keep your ears and ear bud clean between uses. If the irritation persists, you may need to reduce the exposure time per day, or make sure this is not an allergic reaction to the earbud material. Good luck ...Read more
