My left ear was licked by a cat, then after I woke up, my left ear’s hearing became like a malfunctioning … is cat saliva dangerous if it enters the ear?
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service
Until now there has been no research in the medical field that proves that cat saliva can interfere with hearing in humans. Therefore, your hearing loss may not be caused by cat saliva. If you just lick the outer ear, it is less likely that the rest of the saliva can get inside, especially in the middle and inner ear which functions to process sounds from the environment.
Generally hearing function will be disturbed if there are ear disorders including:
Obstruction due to foreign bodies or dirt in the ear Infection / inflammation of the middle ear Nerve disorders in the inner ear There is a history of trauma to the head Effects of drugs Effects of age
If your complaints don't get better, then don't hesitate to do a hearing function check with your nearest doctor. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
