When applying pressure to my ears (closing nose and exhaling) I hear a whistle in my right ear. More pressure, louder whistle. What is happening to me?

Perforation?: If the whistle is longer than momentary, you may have a perforation (hole) in the eardrum of your right ear which is allowing the pressurized air to escape. An ENT doctor would be in a good position to evaluate for this and decide what if any treatment is necessary. ...Read more

Warm compresses may obviate this problem. However if the eyelids appear inflamed, more aggressive treatment is needed.

47 year old female, last one week sometimes whistle sound in left ear and leftside head pain and feel swalling around left eyes.?

A nastier possibility is that an abnormal connection has formed between an artery & another adjacent blood vessels (fistula) resulting in excessive blood flow adjacent to the ear and eye. ...Read more

You can try warm water and hydrogen peroxide mixed 50/50 to help loosen the wax. ...Read more

Lately I've noticed that my left ear is producing a larger amount of earwax than my right ear. And my right ear is clean as a whistle. Why is that?

Ear wax.: May not be a production problem. Ears are probably making wax at the same rate. Retention of wax or extra production or loss of skin cells in the right canal or a differential washing problem may be producing your issue. In any case it does not really seem to be much of a problem. ...Read more

5yr old son had grommets inserted both ears last week. He just blew his nose and I can hear a loud whistle nose coming from his left ear? Normal??

5yr old son had grommets inserted both ears last week. He just blew his nose and I can hear a loud whistle nose coming from his left ear? Normal??

Expected: If you put grommets in the ear drum, it provides a link between the back of the throat and the outside that an intact eardrum would prevent. If he blows his nose, the pressure allows air to enter the Eustachian tube & escape through the grommet. I'd caution him not to blow hard. He can blow germs into his ear and trigger infection. ...Read more
