Ear infections are common and painful, so how are they caused, what are the symptoms and more importantly what can you do to resolve ear infections?
Symptoms Of Ear Infections
Otitis Externa or an infection of the outer ear, has three symptoms. Blockage of the ear, discharge and pain from the affected ear. Swimmers often get it when swimming pool water mixes with ear wax, causing it to expand and block off the ear canal.
Ear infections usually come on after some sort of trauma, which can be scratching the ear, itching the ear, putting objects in the ear, removal of wax, etc. This trauma causes damage to the lining of the ear, which causes an infection. Sometimes the infection can be so bad the whole ear swells up, and the face in front of the ear can become very inflamed.
