Some common ear diseases include ear infections, tinnitus, and hearing loss.Ear infections can occur in the outer, middle, or inner ear. Symptoms of an ear infection may include pain, fever, and fluid buildup in the ear. Treatment for ear infections may involve antibiotics, pain relievers, and ear drops.Tinnitus is a condition where a person hears ringing, buzzing, or other noises in the ear. Tinnitus can be caused by exposure to loud noise, ear infections, or other underlying conditions. Treatment for tinnitus may involve identifying and treating the underlying cause, as well as using sound therapy or medication to manage symptoms.Hearing loss can be caused by a variety of factors, including aging, exposure to loud noise, and certain medical conditions. Treatment for hearing loss may involve the use of hearing aids, cochlear implants, or other assistive devices.In addition to these common ear diseases, there are also several conditions that can affect the ear canal and eardrum.
