It could be number of things. Not only amI a nurse, I myself have had 12 surgeries on things relating to my ears/nose/throat – since they are all connected, a problem in your ears can effect the other two, not to mention cause some pretty funky issues with balance and coordination. I would def go to the doctor. Could be something simple. Also, I wouldn’t put anything in your ear (esp. vinegar and alcohol) if you’re not certain of what the problem is. I had a patient who though she had swimmers ear so she put in the over the counter drops – it was actually a ruptured tympanic membrane and she experienced such intense pain she passed out from it.

Stop picking! It might be an infection or it might not, but it certainly isn’t going to get better if you pick.Wink

Please don’t put random solutions in your ear. Going to the doctor will be a quick appointment–they’ll take a look and most likely prescribe antibiotics. Ear pain and itchiness is not normal and you most likely have an ear infection.
