Why do I get a headache when i were glasses or a headband? It seems to come from where they hit behind my ears

Muscle irritation: It sounds like the glasses or headband are irritating the muscles around the ears. The temporalis muscles are in front and in back of the ears. Some people are more sensitive and compression by glasses or a headband may cause these to tighten and lead to pain. You may try adjusting the tension on the glasses or headband or decrease the amount of time wearing them. ...Read more

The top of my ears are red and swollen and hurt could it be from the sun?

Possibly, yes: Strong possibility if you have been out in the sun, especially if for a long duration. Many hats, e.g. ballcaps do not protect the ears. And tops of ears are most at risk, both from acute sun effects, as well as chronic or long term affects such as skin cancer. Treat the acute sunburn affects with burn or sunburn creams and oral acetaminophen/ ibuprofen for discomfort. Use a hat with wide brim. ...Read more

After hours of wearinf my new headphones my ears are ringing?

May be too loud: It is possible that you have the volume too loud. Prolonged intense noise exposure will cause hearing loss and this may lead to tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Both of these may be temporary or permanent. I highly recommend that you set the volume so you can still hear the outside environment when you are listening to your music through your headphones. ...Read more

I have atopic dermatitis on my ears (tops), corticostriod creams did not help!?

May not be atopic: In general atopic dermatitis responds well to topical steroids. If they are not working at all then it is possible that the diagnosis is not correct. Also, many atopic derm patients may have concomitant bacterial infection in some affected areas. Confirming such a co-existing problem and treating it appropriately will allow the steroids to work better. You probably should be seen. ...Read more

I bought new earrings off ebay and didn't clean them. One of my ears bled when i was putting it on, what are my risk of getting HIV from the earrings?

Almost zero : If the risk of HIV infection after a needlestick injury with an hiv-contaminated hollow-bore needle, is approximately 0, 37% (or one chance out of 370), the risk of getting contaminated by a new earring is infinitesimal. I would say like the same risk of winning the jack pot of mega million lotto. Hope your earrings look nice: enjoy them, you are safe! ...Read more
