Bloody Ears After Boarding The Plane
doc what to do if your ears bleed after taking a flight from Jakarta to Padang?
Hello Vhino, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Bleeding in the ear that occurs after passing the flight using the aircraft is most likely caused by a trauma / injury due to an imbalance of air pressure in the ear that occurs while using the aircraft, but can also be caused by other conditions that may occur before or while boarding the aircraft such as an external ear infection or due to the entry of foreign objects or insects into the ear.
Bleeding in the ear is included in an emergency in ENT so it is advisable to check the complaint immediately to the ENT specialist doctor even though the bleeding has stopped to evaluate what causes it and what therapy should be given.
Meanwhile, aside from going to the ENT doctor immediately, there is no suggestion of any therapy you can do at home. Do not try to pry or clean the inside of your ear using anything including cotton buds because it can cause worsening conditions. Also not recommended to use any ear drops without clear advice from your doctor.
I hope this helps.
