I have an ear infection and it is maybe the fith one I've

Customer Question

Hi! I have an ear infection and it is maybe the fith one I've had over a couple of years! I'm a builder and I thought it was maybe because I scratched the inside with my nail at work with unclean hands which was definitely the case once but have made a point of not doing it so not sure why now! Also my urine is often a bad colour despite drinking plenty of water and haven't had a solid poo for a few weeks now despite me eating healthy and taking vitamins etc! Do you think these things could be connected and if so what do you think is wrong? I'm going to the doctors tomorrow but would like to know now if possible please!

Is it otitis extrena (infection of the external part of the ear) or otitis media (middle ear infection)?
Do you have any history of allergies?
Do you have your nose blocked frequently either due to frequent colds or allergies?
Do you have any other medical problems?
Are you on any medications for anything at the moment for anything?
Please let me know.
