    Weird bump behind ear

    I have a weird lump on the back of my ear, kind of a tannish colour. It doesn't hurt at all just discovered it by accident. I also have a hard lump just below my ear lobe that is internal, you can't see it but can feel it when palpated. I don't know if the two are related at all but if anyone has any kind of answer as to what they could be that would be great. Thank you in advance.

    Going on 2 months with this Throat Infection, desperate for help

    Hello I live in China so every time I go to the doctor they give me antibiotics and tell me to avoid cold water and spicy foods. But after going 3 times and 3 rounds of antibiotics there is no change. I am seriously getting concerned and don't know what to do, my last resort might be to go to America to get treatment but that is last resort. I don't really have to many big problems it's just an irritated throat and looks absolutely terrible, hope someone could help shine some light on....

    Hearing loss but normal hearing test

    I'm 35 and have had trouble hearing for years--especially conversations, tv, or other random noises that others can hear. My husband always asks "You can't hear that" and I often have to ask him what they said on a tv show. I got my hearing tested about 5 years ago and was told it was normal, and the doctor wrote me off saying perhaps I just had "selective hearing" and heard what I wanted to. That is certainly not the case. Even when I'm paying close attention I often....

    Throat stuck in my throat

    I took a pill yesterday that got stuck in my throat. I took it about 15 hours ago and it is still there. I've drank a ton of water, hot water, a couple cups of hot coffee..I've tried eating bread and even other foods to get it out. I tried gargling salt water and even tried the trick of gulping a large amount of water while laying down flat but it is still there and very painful. Any other suggestions?

    ear problem from flying sick weeks ago?

    I was flying from LAX to New Zealand on May 8 and felt a runny nose coming on during the long flight. During landing I felt extreme pain in my ears and felt like my head was going to explode. My left ear popped immediately after landing and my right ear popped shortly before I went to bed. I woke up about 3 hours later in the night and my right ear was completely clogged and I was barely able to hear, and also experienced tinnitus. I went to the doctors in NZ a few days later and the doctor gave....

    Sore throats with mild fever and headache

    I have started feeling lousy today and now my throats is killing me when I swallow. I have a mild headache and about an hour ago, I had a fever of 100.2. I will go to the doctor if I know my sore throat won't just pass on it's own. Any ideas?

  • Ear popping troubles

    My ears have been popping lately, and it's driving me nuts. It started a year or two ago, went away on its own, and now it's back. It seems to happen when it is warmer outside, and seems like it might be related to physical activity and/or dehydration. It's different than my ears popping on a plane or something, because pinching my nose and inhaling will make it go away, but swallowing or blowing my nose will pop them again. Right now, it's only the left ear. There is no pain with....

    I've been stuffed up for a month, then this happened:

    I've been stuffed up for over a month. Just constant stuffy nose. It's gotten a bit better...went to ENT doctor, gave me steroids, on Sudafed, Flonase, Claritin, etc-- it was bad enough a couple of weeks ago that I would inhale and nothing would happen out of either nostril. Now it's just the left side. I was in the shower about 10 days ago, and a big chunk of something came out, pretty gross. Fleshy-like substance...and since then smaller, similar things have been coming out too. Till....

  • Tonsillitis without pain??

    My 3 yr old (nearly 4) has been given antibiotics for tonsillitis. I went to the doctor bc she's had a cough for abt 2 months. Everytime I had been to the doctor during the past 2 months, the doctor said it was just viral - which is fine. And this time she listened to her chest and again she said it was clear. She looked in her throat and said my daughter's got white spots on her tonsils, so prescribed antibitoics for tonsillitis. I started her on the antibiotics today but im just concerned....
