The ear is one of the most important part of the human body and is divided into three different sections: The outer ear, the middle ear and the inner ear.

A highly common cause of the earache is due to plugged ‘Eustachian’ tubes (the tube that comes from the back of your throat and connects to your middle ear). If and when your Eustachian tube becomes blocked, fluid will gather resulting in a painful earache, bringing with it the possibility of bacteria buildup or ear infection.
