I have irritation and swelling in the outer ear canal. It began as an incredible itch two days ago. Now it is alternating between itch and mild pain. The ear infection is causing reduced hearing besides too much swelling to insert my hearing aid.

I am a constant cleaner of my ear. I kept poking Q-tips in my ear because of the itchy feeling. My ear is now infected with mucus and I have a slight loss of hearing and occasional pain. I have been to the specialist but nothing is happening as something in the ear is blocking the ear drops from going in properly and I am still seeing mucus.

With ear infection, when closing my eyes I felt like I was going to fall down.

I had an inner ear infection and an outer infection in my other ear. The antibiotics wouldn't cure my inner ear so after 2 rounds of antibiotics my doctor said he could slice the ear and drain the infection.

I started getting symptoms after having a cold. I lost a lot of my hearing. I have hearing aids and I hear with them, but without them I hardly hear at all. My ears feel as if they are clogged tight.

It started with me having bronchitis and ended with an ear infection. My ear feels full and it rings. I'm sensitive to sound, and I have suffered minor hearing loss in the right ear. I am taking antibiotics and I hope this will be over soon.
