Ok so, I'm deaf in my right ear thanks to a perforated ear drum which also caused tinnitus. Not only is the ringing noise driving me to distraction my now my left ear is losing its hearing and has become painful and itchy. There's no discharge and it only hurts to touch the tragus. Theres no inflamation visable without looking down my ear so what could it be?
ANY help will me much appreciated.

  • See your ENT …I don't know about the itching and pain (possibly an infection … especially with the tragus involvement) ... but I do know about tinnitus ... I am a two-year sufferer of incessant tinnitus (due to bilateral cholesteatoma) ...I can say ... tinnitus will drive you nuts! Try "white noise" ... like running fans and/or an air purifier all the time (I have one in every room of my house) …Good luck to you …

  • oooh, a fan you say?hmmm, I've always got my computer fan/s running thanks to all the college work I do. I have got a fan in the garage I could try. All I can remember about this tinnitus is that I've had it since I was a kid and I can't remember what set it off.
