Otomycosis (also known as Singapore Ear) is a fungal ear infection, a superficial mycotic infection of the outer ear canal. The infection may be either subacute or acute and is characterized by inflammation, pruritus, scaling, and severe discomfort. The mycosis results in inflammation, superficial epithelial exfoliation, masses of debris containing hyphae, suppuration, and pain.
Additional recommended knowledge
Most ear infections are not caused by fungi, but exceptions exist.
