There are many possible causes of ear problems that may affect our hearing. Some of these problems may result to tinnitus or ringing in the ear, pain and irritation. In some cases, fever can already be a symptom of ear infection.

If you are experiencing pain in the ear or fluid drain from the ear, then you might have infection in the middle ear or otitis media. Sometimes ear problem causes redness and swelling the outer ear and the surrounding skin, headache and redness behind the ear that is painful touch. The pain may be coming from mastoiditis or enlargement of the lymph node.

A thick pus-filled or bloody ear drain associated with pain may have been cause from a ruptured eardrum. Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) symdrome, block Eustachian tubes which often result from cold and flu is also cause irritation and pain in the ear. After riding an airplane or driving on high mountain ranges, a person might experience fullness in the ear due to the change of pressure from the surrounding.

Sometimes, ear problems may not cause ear pain or redness but hearing loss. A fluid buildup (serious otitis media) or a possible earwax buildup might have taken place in the ear. Most of these underlying ear problems cause tinnitus or ringing in the ear. Other self care methods such as antibiotics can help reduce the swelling and irritation but should be taken with caution.

Effective tinnitus treatment and remedies are also made available for the ringing in the ear. No matter how mild or severe ear problem you may have experienced, it is necessary to visit your doctor to avoid further complications and damage to your hearing. You must take note that some hearing damage can no longer be restored; therefore everyone should take care of their hearing senses and respond right away to the symptoms manifested.
