I suspect I must have middle ear infections, most likely the eustachian tube. I have feelings of mild pain, heaviness and fullness in my right ear.

My symptoms of ear infection are swollen neck and ear, lots of pain, fluid coming out of ear. Now it has moved to the other side, and I have loss of hearing.

I've had an ear infection for 3 plus weeks. Had 3 rounds of antibiotics and the pain is unbelievable at times. My doctor calls in antibiotic ear drops, which is USD 268.99! I don't think so. Looking for the best home treatments. Done with my doctor!

I hear a liquid sound inside my ear and sensation of a slow movement in my ear when I change positions. I have a headache on the left side for a couple of days and I never get headaches. I think I may have an ear infection and I would like to know how to self-treat to avoid going to the doctor.

I have pain and swelling around the outside of my ear from ear infection. My ear is really sensitive to touch.

A polyp grew from the inside of my ear with a bad smell since the last ten years.

I am wondering how I can clear my ear infection. I've used olive oil, still no help.
