As an ENT Surgeon I  face questions about  ear infections, problems with hearing, itching of ear dizziness, ringing in ear discharge and many other.

Through this series of posts I plan to do all I can to help .

Many causes of earache makes diagnosis without examination almost impossible. Children specially often complain of earache.As a parent you face tremendous challenges to give relief and support to your family during these times.

Impossible to actually write about all the ear problems in easily digestible language without it becoming a science lecture. But what’s there in life except attempting the impossible.So here goes. These are the first two post in the series of ear problems. Write to me dramrita@healthwealthbridge.com for any queries. Remember to always contact an ear specialist when your problem is persistent.


Unlike other body parts you really can’t look into your own ear or that of you loved ones without specialised instruments.

  1. I have never had an ear infection before but once I cleaned my ear a bit to deep and I have never felt that kind of pain before and my friend told me thats how it feels like when you have an ear infection. Ouch! And you are right about having earache is difficult becauae one need special instruments to look into the ears.

  2. I have actually been diagnosed with extremely tiny ear canals that get filled with sticky wax. Between not being able to hear well and my terrible memory it makes life a little less enjoyable. I need to see an ENT really soon 🙁

    • Hi Melanie.Try increasing your daily intake of water and fluids to about 4 to 6 litres per day( depending on how hot the climate is ).
      Increasing water helps make more fluid ear wax ,which is easily self cleaned.
      Hope this helps.
