What is the pain behind the ear from wearing a mask?

The mask relies mainly on two elastic cords that are fixed near the body’s mouth and nose.
If the patient wears the mask for a longer period of time, the taut elastic cord will compress the tissue behind the ear and induce significant pain. Patients can take off the mask after wearing it for a period of time and massage the ear, or they can choose a looser mask to wear.
