    ENT - What would cause a babies ear to swell shut?

    The opening to my 5 month granddaughter’s ear has swollen almost completely shut. Local ENT had never seen anything like it. I can send you a picture of her ear. Any suggestions? Please help!

    I feel weak after a cold and ear infection

    61 year old female. 5'3 and 145 pounds. No known health issues. Had a really bad cold for a couple of weeks. Got up one morning to go to the bathroom and fainted on the way back to my bed. I felt myself passing out and slid down my door into a sitting position. My son heard it and found me, tried to get me onto the bed and I straightened out and fainted again while sliding onto the floor. He said he thought I was having a seizure at first because I just stared straight ahead with bulging eyes....

    Cyst-like bump in ear canal?

    Recently I’ve been having a slight pain in my left ear but didn’t think much of it until I felt a bump forming. It’s been getting bigger over the past couple days and is starting to affect my hearing. Calling the dermatologist tomorrow but wondering if anyone has a clue of what this could be?

    Is this tinnitus? feeling worried

    Hello, good afternoon. I'm not sure about what I have, so I wanted to seek some guidance, if possible. Soon it'll be 3 weeks more or less since I started to hear some "whoosh, whooosh" inside my right ear, like wind blowing. It gets slightly "louder" whenever I lie down or crouch to pick up something. It's not all the time, but now and then I hear the "whooshing". I went to a doctor and she said that other than a earwax build-up, everything looked fine, so....

    I've been sick since last week of December & nothing is getting better...kinda freaking!

    Ok, yeah...I'm an utter moron & with my horrid luck lately, a Darwin Award recipient is probably in my near future. Anyway, I don't get sick. Like ever. However, the last week of December, I got my *** handed to me by some microbe. Came on like gangbusters & HASN'T LET UP. Horrible coughing (the worst is when I'm trying to sleep), severe sore throat, absolutely ZERO voice (it kinda ranges from some super deep freaky frog to a squeek). Constantly cold, ears hurt...and always....

    Constant mucus issues

    Hey you guys, been having the same problem for around 7 months now. I have mucus all in my ears nose and have to clear my throat all the time. My ears are always ringing. Been to ear nose throat specialist a few times and even saw an audiologist for the ringing in my ear. They kept saying it was allergies but I'm not new to seasonal allergies and I'm not itchy or have watery eyes like I do during allergy season and the meds they gave me all failed. I was put on two different types of antibiotics....

    Ear pain after blowing nose

    I have a cold/flu, plus ongoing sinus issues. Last night I used my netti pot to flush my sinuses, and blew my nose once the water had run through, holding one nostril closed while blowing the other. When I blew the left side, I blew really hard trying to dislodge gunk that was refusing to budge and all of a sudden, I felt a pop in my right ear and searing pain deep inside. For a few minutes, it was like I had water in it that was trapped, then that went away, but the pain persists today. Occasionally....

    Cartilage ear piercing infection

    I pierced my cartilage about a year ago and now I noticed it's like a big swollen bubble on my ear and I took the piercing out and popped the bubble and blood and pus came out. What should I do? How do I treat it? Thanks.

    Hyperintense lesion in the posterior aspect of the right internal auditory canal

    Hi. I went to see ENT because of a fluttering/vibrating feeling in my right ear. Repeated annual MRI with and without MultiHance of my head/brain led to diagnosis of a 3 x 3 x 4 mm lipoma in right distal IAC adjacent to the fundus. Same testing in the following year showed no change but added information indicating "There may be some associated architectural distortion of the distal aspect of the right cranial nerves VII and VIII". Over two years there appeared to be no change in size.....

    It's Hard To Hear In My Left Ear

    Well I listened to my music loud, to block people out. And the day before yesterday I couldn't hear out of my left ear and I still can't, it feels like there's a pressure in there, and when I tilt my head to the side it feels like more pressure what should I do. Because I'm only 17 years old and I'm scared of not hearing
