son, I’m 8 months old, it’s almost 3 weeks of discharge like snot from his ears but it doesn’t smell, I’ve taken it to the ENT too but it hasn’t dried until now. How long do you think it will dry?

1 Answer:

Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Discharge in the ears of babies, the same causes as discharge in the ears of children and adults, among the possibilities are:

Infection Earwax Water stored in bathing Injury to the ear canal

In your child's case, because the fluid looks like snot and you've also had an ENT checked, it's possible that infection is the main cause. The dryness actually depends on whether the infection in your child's ear is still ongoing or not, but on average it can take anywhere from a few days to around 1-2 weeks.

So our advice, continue to use the drugs prescribed by your ENT doctor to your child, and take care of your child's hygiene and health as much as possible. If after the medicine runs out the complaint still persists, or even worsens, immediately check your child's condition to the ENT doctor. Hope your child gets well soon.

That's all, hope it helps.
