Caption: Earache. Boy holding his ear in pain, while flying in an airplane. The cause of the pain is due to the rapid changes in air pressure that occur during takeoff and landing. The air pocket inside the middle ear expands, which stretches the eardrum causing the Eustachian tube to have difficulty in regulating these rapid changes. Taking a decongestant, which shrinks the membranes in the ear canal, before the flight or chewing gum during takeoff and landing may alleviate the pain.
