Im ear pain with discharge take treatment not improved diagnosis? Fungal otitis media please need treatment
I have outer ear pain in my right ear after i sleep. I do have a tooth that has a temporary filling on the same side with a root canal treatment. Could they be related?
Many possibilities: Tooth pain commonly does radiate and can be perceived as ear pain. It should be understood, however, that there may be other possibilities as well. I never recommended a temporary filling after root canal treatment. The root canal was done to cleanse the inside of your tooth. Temporary fillings have a risk of leaking and compromising the tooth. See your dentist for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If TMJ is cause of major ear pain (worse when weather changes), ENT says ear is normal, what is course of action? Custom mouth guard? Massage therapy?
See your dentist: Have your dentist evaluate or refer you to an oral surgeon that can better assess the area and come up with a treatment modality that just does not mask the symptoms. Once the proper diagnosis is attained, a nightguard may be the correct therapy, a series of visits with an physical therapist, or other treatments may be indicated based upon clinical and radiographic interpretation. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Will keflex and a decongestant take care of ear pain/pressure? Will a heating pad also help to ear. Started with chest cold a week ago. Moved to my head. Have also had a fever for 1 week. Sudden onset of pressure/pain in left ear yesterday. Some yellowish
Unless : Unless the ear pain and pressure are secondary to a bacterial infection, antibiotic therapy is unlikely to be helpful. We often prescribe antibiotics for persistent complaints beyond a week that may have been initiated by a viral prodrome to prevent secondary superinfection. Keflex, in general, would not be considered the drug of choice for community acquired otitis media. An oral decongestant can assist in relief of nasal, sinus, and mucosal congestive changes leading to eustachian tube dysfunction resulting in ear pain and pressure. Topical afrin is more effective as a decongestant as it works more directly at the target site as long as you respect the 3-5 day maximal useage recommendations to avoid rebound congestion (rhinitis medicamentosa). A heating pad for inflammatory conditions may actually worsen the pain by increasing the firing rate of the nerves carrying the pain impulses.If you continue with ear drainage of the type you are referring i would have the ear examined to rule out sponataneous perforation of the eardrum. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When i exercise heavily and with cool weather I have severe ear pain, 15 minutes after i stop exercising the pain stops. What is the cause and cure?
Eustachian tube: The ear/nose/thorat area is interconnected. The eustachian tube connects the ear canal to the rest ; sensitive to changes of pressure. When you are taking a shower, turbulence happens to air with the steam rising, the shower curtain draws in. The eustachian tube experiences something similar in your case when you run. Perhaps the shape in your body is narrower, perhaps, you have sinusitis etc. ...Read more
Dr. can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges and acetaminophen or ibuprofen can help decrease pain. ...Read more
