Earache. Conceptual image of earache showing a painful red area over a woman's ear. The pain may be due to otitis media, the inflammation of the middle ear due to an infection spreading from the eustachian tube that joins the middle ear and nasal cavity. The tube may become blocked, causing a build-up of fluid behind the eardrum. This causes sharp ear pain and impaired hearing. Treatment is usually with antibiotics.
