Can allergies cause ear pain?

Yes, environmental allergies can cause ear pain. This is because your nose, throat, and sinuses all connect to your ears. When you experience an allergic reaction, inflammation blocks the Eustachian tubes, which can lead to fluids building up in the middle ear. This can give you a temporary earache.

What to do if ear drops won’t go down?

When self-administering ear drops, be sure to lay on your back or side with the affected ear up, and lightly pull back the ear as you apply the drops. Stay in this position for 3-5 minutes and allow the drops to run down the entire ear canal. If it feels like there is water trapped in your ears or you are feeling any pain, please contact us.
