Hello, With reference to your query regarding your right ear, which is giving you pain, full and cannot hear since yesterday. Earlier to this you seem to have had viral infection for the last 5 days so resulting in nasal congestion, sore throat, fever, cough and ear ache. They are all inter-related. In between you felt fine and this earache in your right ear started after that. Earache is very common in infants and children. They do occur in adults, but it is less common. Earache may be from the external ear or from the middle ear. Earache infections very often accompany a common cold, the flu, or other type of respiratory infections. This is because the middle ear is connected to the upper respiratory tract by a tiny channel known as the Eustachian tube. Germs that are growing in the nose or sinuses cavities can climb up the Eustachian tube and enter the middle ear to start growing. Sometimes it occurs in a family history of ear infections, tobacco smokers, with poor immune systems. In external ear, the symptoms may include ear redness, itchiness, pain when moving the head and fever, where as in middle ear infections, patient will have pain, fever, a feeling of fullness in the ear, hearing loss drainage, balance problems. These can be treated with antibiotics and for pain you can take painkillers. But before that I would suggest you to get your ear checked by the G.P or ENT surgeon before they assess you. Thank you.
