A Clear, Reddish Discharge From The Ear?
Morning, I want to ask about the problem of clear reddish discharge from the ear, what kind of fluid should be cleaned or just left alone, ..
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Reddish discharge from the ear, most likely a sign of bleeding in the ear canal caused by:
Injuries caused by picking up the ear, either with a cotton swab, finger or other tool
Inflammation of the ear canal
Entry of foreign objects or insect bites
Tearing of the eardrum
Our advice is that you should do further tests with a general practitioner or ENT doctor so that you can find out the real cause of the bleeding from your ear. Your doctor will focus on taking a history and a physical exam using special tools to look at the inside of your ear canal. The treatment you will receive will be adjusted to these findings.
Meanwhile, avoid putting objects or putting anything in the ears, keep the ears dry, especially when bathing, and just dry them with gauze or dry towels so that the liquid absorbs itself and does not need rubbing. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
