Hello, I got a sudden pain in my right ear down to my neck

This answer was rated:

Hello, I got a sudden pain in my right ear down to my neck and it was quite painful but I managed to stop the pain by having a deep breathe in and out and now I am feeling a little bit stuff on the right side of my neck/gland. I think it was due to too much pressure in my ear using a pen etc?

Thank you Peter, for the information.

This can be due to an infection of the external ear.

It can be bacterial or fungal.

There can be some predisposing factors for it.

Trauma can be a factor.

The drop & cream would help to control the infection & inflammation.

If the pain gets severe or the discharge increases, you need to take an examination by doctor again

You can need oral antibiotic too.

You can take antiinflammatory analgesics like motrin or naproxen, if there is no other contraindication.

That will help with pain.

You can apply heat too.

This can be soothing.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.

Thank you for your response and what do you mean by 'You can apply heat too'?

You are always welcome.

You can apply warm towel to ear.

This often helps to reduce the pain
