Ear Infection and Treatment


Some people have a persistent problem of itching in the ears. In such a situation, they are constantly using earbuds which is not a sure cure for this problem. Also, this method proves harmful at times. Fungal and bacterial infections can be caused by ear itching. Let’s know here why you are having this problem and how you can treat them from the ENT specialist at Best ENT Hospital in Gurugram.

Bacterial Infection

Bacterial infection can occur due to several reasons. The use of earbuds made of infected cotton may also be one of the reasons. Any bacterial infection in the throat or nose can also cause infection to spread in your ear. Bacterial infection can also occur due to water in the ear while bathing and swimming and not paying attention to cleaning the ear.

Fungal Infection

One reason for fungal infection in the ear may also be not taking care of the cleanliness of the ear. It is possible that the piece of earbud may be left inside the ear and cause a fungal infection. Therefore clean the ears properly with a towel.

Ruptured eardrum

A ruptured eardrum can happen suddenly. You may feel a sharp pain in your ear for a while suddenly goes away. It's also possible that you may not have any sign that your eardrum has ruptured

It is important to know when your problem can be serious. Contact your doctor, if

  1. There is a discharge of liquid substances such as malt or blood.
  2. If you have a high fever, headaches.
  3. You feel as if something has jammed your ear.
  4. There is swelling behind your ear, especially if weakness appears on the side of your face.
  5. You have severe pain in your ear and it stops suddenly.
  6. There is no improvement in your symptoms in 24 to 48 hours or the symptoms have become more severe.


Treatment of the ear depends on the reason for the pain in your ear. The condition of every patient is different. The ENT Specialist in Gurugram says we prescribed the treatment only after examining the patient. Ear problems can be treated by removing the causes of fungal and bacterial infections.

Remember that too much use of earbuds can damage your ear. This may reduce your hearing or make the outer phase of your ear wider. This increases the risk of infection rising further.
