Avatar n tn The doctor said that nicotine is highly toxic to the ear drums and that my child did indeed have an ear infection,so she prescribed a low dose of anti-biotics.My mother simply does not believe that she could hurt my child unless she actually smokes around her.Which I and my husband both know simply isnt true.
Avatar n tn I don't think there is a name for it and it shouldn't prevent you from diagnosing you or your child should you have an infection. Tugging at ears? Crying a lot? Get baby checked for ear infection. My kids had ear infections without fever. They diagnose an ear infection by looking in. So, you'll just need to read the signs of your child. Go by other symptoms and you should be fine as also, fever can be tricky to read lots of times.
Avatar f tn I realize that these symptoms can probably be attributed to an ear infection, but I feel like since ear infections are not common in adults and that it's happening right within the time ARS symptoms would show up, that it might be too much of a coincidence. I also finished a round of antibiotics about a week ago, which would make an ear infection unlikely also.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also said swimmer's ear cases amounted to about $500 million in annual medical costs — or roughly $200 per visit.
Avatar m tn I know what you mean feeling alone with this problem with ear tubes in adults. I had ear tubes put in last year and for me I feel was a big mistake! the only think that helped me was wearing my hearing aids.
Avatar n tn However, i have been experiencing buring in and around my left ear frequently and getting headaches almost everyday. I also have frequent pain in my throat. I have gone to an oral surgeon and doesnt think i have oral herpes. Are these symptons of oral herpes? are there any suggestions that anyone has to reduce the headaches and burning in and around the ear? Thanks in advance for anyone's input.
Avatar f tn took my dog to vet today, said she has a ear infection. she has been having some extreme symptoms tonight though, licking her lips, looking upward, and biting at unseen objects.
Avatar m tn Does the problem in the neck and clogged ear sound linked to a possible ear infection from swimming?
Avatar f tn I did have a day where my ears were bothering me. After my symptoms left I was left with my left ear feeling like pressure .I would tug on the ear lobe and feel better. But now I feel like my lymph node is swollen.
Avatar f tn t been able to talk to many adults who have tubes,I would like to know your experience so far with the tube,I feel I made a mistake in getting tubes beck in Aug of 2017,really has lower my ear lost,I want them out but scare to even do that now.
Avatar f tn Anxiety or cardiovascular problems can cause the last two, but these would not cause ear pain. Ear pain could be an ear infection, TMJ problem, or something else. Dr. Jimmy is right about the symptoms of Meniere's. Doesn't sound like you have Meniere's at all. Good luck, Nancy T.
Avatar m tn My ENT finally suggested putting a tube in one ear. Tubes are a hard call for adults. My ENT said that about 50% of adults who have them done, have them removed. Have you tried Afrin for three days? If you haven't, that might help some. Only use it for three days or you could experience rebound congestion (addiction). You can take three days off and rotate. I pray that you find a solution soon.
Avatar m tn you might want to ask a dr if they though an mir might be apropriate to rule out any kind of growth or obstruction of eustachian tube... an infection in your ear can also spread by direct contact to your throat and through blood flow to other areas.. it might be a severe bactiria like staph or mrsa which are hard to get rid of and require mutiple treatments and in such an inclosed space it would be easy for it to excalate to even worse symptoms...

Has anyone seen this symptom in their child with an ear infection?? He has no other symptoms... I hate to make a trip to the doctor for nothing, exposing him to worse things like h1n1, not to mention that i can't really afford to take off work..... Any experience or advice? Is he too young to have an ear infection?
Avatar f tn You can bry garlic drops at a health food store. If you can't find them you can infuse garlic in olive oil and put a few drops in your ear. Put a piece of cotton ball in your ear to keep the oil from draining out.

1095010 tn?1284172980 If you have lots of congestion its possible for it to feel like - or sound like - you have a hearing loss. Often when I get a cold I get so much congestion in my sinus cavities and irritation in my throat that the swelling puts pressure on my eustation (sp?) tubes and the tissue around them -- making it seem like I cant hear as well. I've heard of high fevers causing deafness in small chldren, and a few cases in adults.
Avatar f tn I woke up today with a itchy left ear and my left gland is swollen . Just wondering if it is a ear infection . Is there any way to treat it at home ?

Avatar f tn In regards to getting shingles in your ear, judging by my current symptoms, yes. I have quite a few "rashes" on one side of my head and neck, and that ear is in a lot of pain. It all showed up at the same time. I thought it was an ear infection with unrelated chemical burns from work, until my diagnosis. I see the ENT on Monday. It'll be a long wait.
Avatar f tn You can get a throat culture to see if you carry it. But since you have symptoms you should probably see a specialist. Your symptoms could be caused by something else too.
Avatar n tn even if it was just an ongoing infection, I think to keep having them constantly, plus your painful symptoms, and your eye symptoms, this all suggests you need a scan, to look for possibly more tumors. By the way, whenever you finish up a round of antibiotics, drink some Acidophilus milk for about a week, it will help restore the normal "good" bacteria in the body that helps fight off the "bad" bacteria. See, the antibiotics kills ALL the bacteria.
