    i have terrible ear ache - never had it before - what causes it? never realised how much pain it was.
    But all my ear inside feels bruised, is that what ear ach is ment to be like?

    and what can i take for it

    all you can really do hun is take pain killers and maybe put some cotton wool inside it. many things can cause it like a buld up of wax of a draught in your ear but i still say ear ache and tooth ache are worse than labour pains :hugs::hugs:

    if it doesnt get any better by tomorrow i would get an appointment with your gp as soon as you will be able to just to get it checked out :hugs::hugs:

    no they just squirted a load of warm water in, everything was really loud tho. Had to put drops in for a few days first to soften wax, was a relief when i'd had it done.

    Sounds like an infection hun, i would rather go through labour than get toothache or earache
    Worst thing to do is clean ears with a cotton bud, i learnt the hard way when i got a major rollocking from my nurse as i went deaf in one ear and was all compacted

    If you have been prodding too much it could be a perforation as well, did it start not long after you last cleaned them??

    You deff need to go to docs either way or your hospital walk in centre

    get a cold flannel put on ear area then try warm,i get all the time so know how bad they are i would rather give birth.

    take Iburofen and Paracetamol and ask docs fr some ear drops as well as anti-biotics you must go and get it treated or it could perforate.
