EAR ACHE

Definition 
Ear ache is associated with many things: allergies, sinus infections, fluid or ear wax build up, middle ear infection, colds, and ear injuries.It can also be caused by pressure or altitude changes like those people on board a plane. Teething could also be a cause of ear ache as well as swimming on polluted waters. Another cause of ear ache is infection. Since the middle ear contains air, it is the best area where other liquid harmful to the ear gets trapped. Mucus as an example can go to the middle ear. Mucus contains bacteria thus infecting the ear that leads to pain.
