  • What is the reason why I still have ear pain after taking antibiotics?

    1. You do not have a bacterial infection
    2. You weren’t given the proper antibiotic
    3. You don’t have an infection
    4. You have some post infection retraction of your ear drum

    Antibiotics are for bacterial infections, and work if that is the problem and the bacteria are sensitive to the particular antibiotic used.

    You may have not had a bacterial infection, if you did the antibiotic did not take care of the problem, or there is some healing time still to go.

    Check with your doctor.

    Because it is not a painkiller nor its an anti inflammatory medication.

    An Ear or a tooth infection!? Tooth pain can feel like an ear pain! Go to the Doctor/Dentist!

    Antibiotics kill good bacteria also! So take Probiotics, drink Kefir, eat probiotic yoghurt! Probiotics are better!

    You may need a longer course of antibiotics or a new antibiotic!

    this is because the nerves carry the pain above threshold level and as a result the antibiotic fails to cure the pain

    Apparently you have an inner ear infection . These infections are stubborn and sometimes resistant to the initial antibiotics that are given. Also, it’s also possible that the initial antibiotic was effective but have not been given enough time to eradicate the infection. In both instances, you are left with an inner ear infection that can be very painful. What you can do now is get yourself back to the doctors and apply warm compresses to the area and take Motrin for the pain. Also, a decongestant like sudafed will give some relief.

    The most logical answer to your question is that you may still have the infection present in your ear such that what you have been taking vs the bacteria that is causing your infection is resistant to the particular antibiotic your receiving. You need to report this to the provider who prescribed you the antibiotics because they will most likely give you something else to fight the infection. One thing you need to be aware of is not to compromise anything regarding the ear especially when infection is present due to a potential for further complications leading to hearing loss. In this day and age with all the resistant bacteria present from over prescribing antibiotics it is more difficult treating infections today than as recent as 5 years ago years ago. Also demographics has a relationship to resistance. Therefore the bottom line is call the doctor and get re-evaluated before messing around with your ear with questionable advice from this forum. Good luck.

    Proper treatment for your ear infection should eliminate any complications. If you let an ear infection go too long without treatment, you risk permanent hearing loss and possibly having the infection spread to other parts of your head. The pneumococcus bacteria is now the most difficult to treat. Some strains have become very resistant to antibiotics by using their unique ability to transform their genes and cell wall into a bacterial form, which is resistant to most of the antibiotics that commonly are used to treat ear infections.

    Because you didn’t have a problem that was treatable with antibiotics in the 1st place. Most ear aches are not treatable with antibiotics. But it’s a lot easier to just prescribe one then to explain this to a skeptical patient.

    Greetings,

    If you are healthy enough you can do a 3 day fast; using juice, just fresh fruit, or water, based upon your health and take extra rest. That will likely reset your system and some probiotics daily 1–3x per day to offset the gut killers you just took (antibiotics).

    You can also take some OIL OF OREGANO and rub it on the outside of the ear and lay down with a warm compress (just a warmed towel) on the ear. It is strong so you can also dilute it a bit with some coconut oil and just rub the outside of the ear; next time, you can likely skip the harmful antibiotics.

    In love and kindness~

    First of all, do not stick anything in your ear smaller than your elbow. This might sound funny, but you should never stick anything in your ear. NOTHING! No Q-tips. No paper clips. No finger. No anything! Now that we’ve got that point hammered home, you need to schedule a visit with your Primary Care Physician to let him assess your ear. He’ll probably prescribe an antibiotic which you will be squirt in your ear. After a couple of days, your pain will subside, but continue the antibiotic until it’s gone. Hopefully that’s the case, but they can take care of whatever your ear problem is.

    A lot of pain in your ear.

    I had this once as an adult. I tried warm compresses during the night , which didn’t really help that much. Then I went to urgent care in the morning. The doctor gave me a prescription for antibiotics , and a prescription for Vicodin. He told me that often ear infections feel worse for adults than for children, so I was good with taking some Vicodin for a day or so. I took antibiotics for the entire prescription.

    There is no reason to let it go on. It needs to get treated , otherwise it may rupture your eardrum, and then affect your hearing .

    An ENT doctor may be better able to answer this question in more detail.

    If it is allergy season when you are writing this, you may just have allergies that are affecting your ears. If you happen to be in the Bay Area, allergy season is particularly bad this year and many people are having these kind of symptoms that have not had them in the past. Since I moved to the Bay Area, I have found allergy season often comes with these type of symptoms that just feel like ear infections when they are not. The more rural areas around the Bay Area seem particularly at risk. Even my King Charles Cavalier Spaniel seems to suffer from the same symptoms.

    How do you determine if your symptoms may be allergy-related? You might start by checking the pollen count in your area. There are a number of websites online where you can do this. If the count is high or has been high over the last week or so, then that is usually a good indication to me that any symptoms might be allergy-related. If this is the case in your situation, then allergy medicine may actually be sufficient to treat the symptoms. It always clears my dog’s symptoms right up. If you suspect allergies and you don’t get relief from allergy medicines, you might check out some ear, nose & throat specialist websites on clearing eustachian tubes. I have found some excellent information in past Bay Area allergy seasons that I have relied on to clear similar symptoms. I have met others in the Bay Area who saw multiple doctors in frustration before finally getting the same advice that I found online.

    As far as what happens if an actual ear infection goes untreated, I had one once upon a time that did not clear up on medication. The ear drum ruptured in the middle of the night. You will know if that happens to you. It will be very painful. Thankfully, in my case, it did heal back up as good as new with the right medicine.
