Earache is very common medical problem for both children and adults. The pain of earache results from inflammation and swelling of the structures that make up the ear, including the external auditory canal, the tympanic membrane, and the middle ear. In rare instances, ear pain is a sensation caused by a problem or infection in the throat (referred ear pain).
