The ABC Homeopathy Forum
Ear virus appears to cause sores on external ear?I had a sudden onset of tinnitus (ringing in the ear) of my right ear accompanied by hearing loss. I went to see an ear doctor who diagnosed it as a virus and prescribed 7 days of Prednisone, which cleared up the hearing symptoms. However, a bite or wound in my ear was also present at the same time and he didn't know what it was.
Since then, the wound has festered and refused to heal properly and new spots have developed in that ear. It sends stabs of pain from the wound through my head at random times and I can't sleep on it. Touching it is usually painful.
I have set up a quick website (view my profile, I guess) so you can see pictures of the problem. If you need more info, just ask here. Thanks!
