An earache is an inflammation of the outer , middle and inner ear. The one that affects the most often, from 0 to 9 years old, is acute earache, but other types of earaches exist. This is why it is important to consult your doctor for a precise diagnosis.
Middle ear ache is an inflammation of the ear canal caused by a virus or bacteria, often occurring as a result of a cold. For the other types of earaches, repeated use of cotton swabs, water in the ear after a swim or a bath, a trip by plane or a getaway at high altitude can cause earache.
