Treatment for Ear Problems




EAR PROBLEMS

Your ear has three main parts: outer, middle and inner. You use all of them in hearing. Sound waves come in through your outer ear. They reach your middle ear, where they make your eardrum vibrate. The vibrations are transmitted through three tiny bones, called ossicles, in your middle ear. The vibrations travel to your inner ear, a snail-shaped organ. The inner ear makes the nerve impulses that are sent to the brain. Your brain recognizes them as sounds. The inner ear also controls balance.

There are many different types of ear problems. For example, ear pain may be caused by infections of the tonsils, jaw or sinuses. Chronic infection, for example, glue ear, can cause hearing loss that can affect learning and disrupt lifestyle, and exposure to loud noise can also damage hearing. As well as infections, dermatitis can occur in the ears as a result of reactions to topical medicines, wearing jewellery, cosmetics or methacrylate ear plugs.

Common ear problems



  • Glue ear: a type of chronic otitis media. A long-term build-up of thick or sticky fluid in the middle ear behind the eardrum causes hearing loss. This can make socialising and learning difficult, especially if hearing loss is not recognised in early childhood.
  • Ear wax: protects the ear and is normal. However, a build-up of wax may be a problem in some adults, and may require wax-softening ear drops. Sometimes the ears may also need to be syringed clean by a doctor. Impacted ear wax rarely causes an ear discharge or pain, but it may cause hearing impairment.
  • Swimmer’s ear: develops when humidity, heat and moisture cause the skin layer inside the ear to swell. The addition of further water, for example, through swimming, makes the skin lining the ear canal even softer and liable to infection. Attempts to remove the water with cotton buds or other objects may make the condition worse, causing pain and itching.
  • Ear infections are the most common illness in infants and young children. Otitis media: inflammation of the middle ear which causes a build-up of fluid, with or without an infection. If there is an infection, it is often viral. Many children will have several bouts of otitis media before they are 7 years old. Symptoms include crying, ear pulling, mild fever and irritability.
  • Tinnitus, a roaring in your ears, can be the result of loud noises, medicines or a variety of other causes.
  • Meniere's disease may be the result of fluid problems in your inner ear; its symptoms include tinnitus and dizziness.
  • Ear barotrauma is an injury to your ear because of changes in barometric (air) or water pressure.

Some ear disorders can result in hearing disorders and deafness.

One of the most common ear problems that cause patients to seek out the doctor is hearing loss.

There are three main types of hearing loss;

  • Conductive-Conductive hearing loss when there is a problem conducting soundwaves; resulting from issues with an eardrum, ear canal and/or the three bones connected to the eardrum. Often there is a buildup of material in the ear, such as fluid or ear wax, which must be eliminated.
  • Sensorineural-Sensorineural hearing loss is related to problems with the inner ear. This type of loss involves damage to the nerves from exposure to loud noise (noise-induced hearing loss), or it may be related to aging. This type of hearing loss is most often associated with hearing aids.
  • mixed (both conductive and sensorineural)

DIAGNOSIS





Additional tests

Your doctor may perform other tests if there is any doubt about a diagnosis, if the condition hasn't responded to previous treatments, or if there are other long-term or serious problems.



TREATMENT

1.Pain Relief -If a virus or bacteria is causing the infection and you have to wait for it to get better, you don’t need to live with the pain.

Your doctor may recommend a pain reliever, typically acetaminophen or ibuprofen, which also helps reduce a fever. Pain can also be reduced by using low heat from a heating pad.

2.Antibiotics -If your doctor decides to go with antibiotics, follow all the instructions. Take all of the doses even if you or your child are feeling better.If you don’t take the whole course, your infection could come back and become resistant to more treatments.

3.Drainage -If an infection causes serious complications, fluid remains in the ear for a long time, or your child has ear infections that keep coming back, your doctor might want to do a procedure called a myringotomy.She creates a small hole in the eardrum so fluids such as water, blood, or pus can drain out. In many cases, she will put in a tube so it won’t get backed up again.

The tube, which will usually fall out on its own in about 6 to 18 months, lets the fluid out and air flow through to keep the middle ear dry. Tubes also:

4.Natural Remedies

You can do things at home to ease your symptoms. Talk to your doctor first about these tips:



EFFECTIVENESS OF ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture points stimulate the central nervous system to release biochemical into muscles, the spinal cord and the brain. These biochemical can affect, for example, the experience of pain and/or release of other biochemical, such as hormones, that influence the body’s self-regulating systems.Acupuncture affects immunological function in two directions: either strengthening the weak responses; or in cases of over-expressive responses regulating or inhibiting the over activities.Acupuncture also increases blood flow to organs.Several experimental research studies demonstrated the positive influence of acupuncture on chronic inflammation.All these effects, and probably many more, contributed to the reduction in ear problems.

MECHANISM OF ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture therapy successfully manages chronic ear problems. The chronic otitis externa was related to Damp-Heat in the Gallbladder meridian and an underlying Spleen Qi deficiency. Using acupuncture points to tonify the Spleen and expel the Damp-Heat from the Gallbladder greatly reduces the clinical symptoms of the otitis externa and is helping to manage the chronic inflammation.
