Ear

Acute inflammation of the outer ear

Bacteria, a normal inhabitant of the skin (staphylococci, streptococci, pseudomonas) or fungi can cause inflammation, especially in case of an injury caused by ear cleaning.

 

Allergic skin reactions may be present in the ear canal (eczema, contact dermatitis). The first symptom is pain in the ear, pressure and loss of hearing.

It is necessary to contact the doctor who will examine the ear and recommend treatment. During the exam, the pain is felt as soon as the ear is touched.
