Otitis Externa

Otitis externa is an inflammation which is caused by bacterial or fungal infection and is commonly referred to as swimmer’s ear. The inflammation occurs on the outer part of the ear and can include symptoms such as itching, ear pain, pain whilst chewing, swelling, redness, enlarged lymph nodes near the ear and in some cases, temporary hearing loss. Ear drops, medication, herbal remedies and massage can help treat Otitis externa. Suction can also help, by removing excess pus or fluid and keeping the ear dry.
