Otalgia?: Common cause of ear pain in adults is inflammation of the ear canal. Common cause is soap from shampoo, gets in ear canal and dries the area - much like dishpan hands from soap. Prevent this by adding 2 drops of baby oil or olive oil to ear canal before you shampoo.

Serous otitis: You likely have a serous otitis media. This means there is fluid behind the eardrum. Talk with your ent. Some would treat with antibiotics while others would suggest just giving it time to resolve on its own.

Is it possible to constructing the entire right ear as it looks natural ear?

Is it possible to constructing the entire right ear as it looks natural ear?

Complex & typically: Requires several surgeries because of the variables/complexity to achieve something very similar. Best study the issues yourself: getting local tissue to grow/stretch so as to achieve enough surface area, moving suitable appropriate skin/cartilage from adjacent (rarely other) locations of your body, complexity of maintaining working arterial & capillary drainage of moved tissues. Then seek help.

Is right ear louder than left ear?

Is right ear louder than left ear?

Not usually,: There may be hearing loss in one ear. Causes vary. The easiest to treat is when the hearing loss is due to wax build-up, which is easily removed by a trained professional who diagnoses it after examination. Don't use Q-tips! Or stick anything else in your ears. "The only thing that should go in your ear is your elbow or a piano." See a doc to find out what's going on.
