Who remembers having these as a kid?

I have a minor one right now :| The wind caused it. It's really painful lol

I remember when I was six and bawling my eyes out and screaming at the hospital because it hurt really, really bad ><

i don't really remember getting infection inside my actual ear, but i get infections from earrings

the only kind of earrings that i dont get infections from are silver earrings
even if they're silver, they'll itch and eventually lead to an infection unless i clean them daily which is annoying
the infections are usually just oozing yellow puss and when i pick at it, blood

it isnt really painful, just annoying/itchy/gross o-o

I never had any as a child, but these days given my prolonged headphone wearing they're quite common — usually every January for whatever reason.

I've only had one, and that was when I was 5. Yea, I keep my ears clean <:

Oohh, I remember ear infections. I had tubes put in my ears when I was about 18 months old and they eventually fell out when I was in preschool or kindergarten. I haven't really gotten any lately, but I also find it hard to figure out if it's my ears that bother me or my TMJ acting up. 9 times out of 10 it's the latter.

I've never had an ear infection.

Just earring infection like someone said. Not a bad one. Just forgot to clean it once. Ugh.

I remember when I was in 6th grade, I had a bad one, and I remember crying myself to sleep due to all the pain -.-

Ear Infections are horribleeeee.

I've never had an ear infection in the traditional sense, but there was a time in elementary school where I lodged a bean in my ear that proceeded to sprout and cause me all kinds of headaches until it was removed.

...I was a silly kid. XD

I apparently got them all the time as a kid. Or was that my sister?

Last time I had one was my senior year of high school. Just randomly clogged up one night. Ended up missing a few days of school and had to go to the hospital for some antibiotics. Once I had the antibiotics, the pain stopped, but it was annoying, not being able to hear out an ear. XD;

No that is exactly what Timbjerr meant, or must be, since it's the only valid-in-context definition of sprout.
Sounds implausible, but once one realises the ear is a warm, moist place...

I used to get ear infections all the time when I was a kid. I vaguely remember constantly having medication for it in the fridge or something because I had them so often. @_@;

I don't think I've had one in years and years, though. :s I get ear aches occasionally but they're usually just linked to congestion anyway.

I've only got an ear infection once, and it was last year. I had gone swimming in a lake when it was windy...it wasn't a big infection, but definitely not fun. :\

My sister used to get them all the time when she was a baby. They put tubes in her ears.

I recall getting swimmer's ear quite a bit as a kid...stupid pool.

Though other than that, haven't really had that many of them (aside from the random one I had like two and a half years ago; that was pain enough to the point of crying, ugh).

For some reason my ear insists in getting infected almost every month. I never get sick - I just get an ear infection. I actually had to get tubes stuck in my ears because of them.

...

Ear infections are hell. I remember getting them SO badly when i was little. I was crying in like agony because they hurt so bad. >_<

Nowadays, I'm glad I stopped getting them. I had my tonsils and adenoids taken out when I was around four or five so I hardly ever get sick.
