Ear Pain\Ear Block

EAR PAIN\EAR BLOCK


Ear Pain\Ear Block usually occur in children, but they can occur in adults as well. An earache may affect one or both ears, but the majority of the time it is in one ear. It may be constant or come and go, and the pain may be dull, sharp, or burning.

If you have an ear infection, fever and temporary hearing loss may occur. Young children who have ear infections tend to be fussy and irritable. They may also tug at or rub their ears.



Causes Of Ear Pain\Ear Block


    Ear Wax Blockade

Earwax blockage (called cerumen impaction) can occur when your body produces too much earwax or when the existing wax pushes too far into your ear canal. In some cases, you may not be able to hear out of the affected ear, but this typically lasts only until you can have the excess wax removed.

    Outer Ear Infection

An infection can also occur if the thin layer of skin that lines the outer ear is ruptured. Intense scratching or using headphones or cotton swabs can create a rupture. When the layer of skin becomes damaged, it can provide a foothold for bacteria.

    Foreign Objects

In medical terms, a foreign object is something that is in the body but does not belong there. Foreign objects may be inserted into the body accidentally or intentionally. They are also sometimes swallowed. They can become lodged or stuck in various parts of the body, such as the ears, nose, eyes, and airways.

    Middle Ear Infection (Otitis)

A middle ear infection, also called otitis media, occurs when a virus or bacteria causes the area behind the eardrum to become inflamed. The condition is most common in children. Most middle ear infections occur during the winter and early spring. Often, middle ear infections go away without any medication.
