Examination sees clean auditory canal, slightly red tympanic membrane, mild invagination or a horizontal shadow behind the tympanic membrane which can move as the head moves.

Main symptoms and signs: Fullness, obstruction and discomfort inside the ear last long without recovery, which is like being blocked by an object in severe cases. Hearing declines, and worsens gradually. Tinnitus is like hearing a cicada's singing, or with murmur.

Audiometry proves conduction deafness. The tongue is deep purple with thin and white fur. The pulse is taut and unsmooth.

Main symptoms and signs: Otalgia is severe like being punctured by an awl.  It manifests as cry and restlessness in children. Hypoacusis is even more obvious. Examination shows deep red tympanic membrane with evagination, or small yellow spots which is the premonitory sign of perforation of the tympanic membrane. Or there exists the small hole on the tympanic membrane. But profuse pus still exists without being discharged. The tongue is red with yellowish fur. The pulse is taut and rapid.
