Doctor: Edgar Rubio Villegas, Doctor replied 4 months ago

Due to the characteristics of the pain, neuropathic pain is impressive. This type of pain takes a while to recover since it affects the nerve, and can take up to 5 days to disappear, the pain is internal and should subside with the days. it is recommended not to use the telephone, headphones or anything that may stimulate the nerve.
You should also start an anti-inflammatory such as Ibuprofen 200mg every 8 hours for 5 days.
If this pain does not improve, however, it is necessary to see a doctor for an examination of the ear and its auditory canal.
as it can generate an infectious process due to irritation of the ear canal.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
