What causes earache?

Earache can be a sharp, dull or burning pain in one or both ears - and it can come and go or be constant.

It is a common problem, particularly in children.

Earache is often caused by an infection, but it can sometimes happen as the result of injury to the inside of the ear – with poking a cotton bud in too far a common issue.

Earache will often clear up after just a few days, but it can be quite painful.

You can speak to your local Rightdose pharmacist for health advice, you can also view the NHS guide to relieving the symptoms of earache.
