Tips to reduce ear pain

Ear pains are mostly caused by infections in the middle ear, a cyst developing in the ear, injury or ringing in the ear. Sometimes injuries around the ear could cause referral pain in the ears. In rare cases an object may have gotten into the ears. Depending on the cause, the ear, nose and throat physician may choose one of the following treatments. Removing wax and cleaning the ear, suggesting ears drops to relieve pain, treating the cyst, balancing the pressure in the tubes or removing the object logged inside the ear. Sometimes, he may seek another specialist’s help in treating pain around the ear but not related directly to the ear.
