Ear pain, also known as earache or otalgia, can be caused by various factors, including infections, injuries, and underlying health conditions. It can affect individuals of all ages. Here’s what you need to know:

Common Causes of Ear Pain:

  • Ear Infections: Infections of the middle ear (otitis media) or outer ear (otitis externa) can lead to ear pain.
  • Blockages: Earwax blockages or foreign objects in the ear can cause discomfort.
  • Injuries: Trauma to the ear, such as from pressure changes during flights or injuries, can result in ear pain.
