Earache, in most cases is pain in the inner or outer ear that may interfere with ability to hear, often caused by excess fluid and infection. Common cause are:
- tight headwear
- sleeping on hard surface
- poor fitting headphones
- extensive use of airpods
- grinding teeth, TML
- throat infections
- sinus infections due to colds, flu or allergies
Earache can be a sharp, dull or burning ear pain that comes and goes or is constant. One or both ears may be affected.
At Lymphatic Massage of Florida, we have been successful in treating clients that come with earache due to either sinus infections or allergies by using our Lymphstar Pro to treat the ear from the outside (see above photo). A 30 minutes session minimum can help alleviate the discomfort associated with fluid in the ear, safely and effectively recommended for all ages.
