Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Inflammation of the ear can be limited to the outer ear (otitis externa) or the middle (otitis media). This condition can cause the ear canal to be swollen, reddish, painful, and excessive secretions. The cause can be due to excessive scratching of the ear, the insertion of a foreign object into the ear, or also the spread of infection from the respiratory tract to the ear through the Eustachian tube.
Based on the cause of the inflammation, inflammation in the ear can be treated in several ways. If you look at the information your doctor has given you, he might suspect that inflammation in your ear is due to a bacterial infection. With adequate treatment, complaints will generally improve within 3 to 7 days after treatment.
The appearance of hearing impairment (deafness, deafness) and a sensation of ringing in the ears (tinnitus) can occur due to incomplete inflammation. This can occur for example if you are not undergoing treatment according to the rules, or it could be because the bacteria that infected your ear is resistant to the treatment given. It may also be that your current complaint is related to the side effects of the drugs used (for example, there are antibiotics that are ototoxic). Several other factors, such as excessive noise exposure, the introduction of foreign objects into the ear (such as insects), hypertension (high blood pressure), atherosclerosis, etc. can also trigger your complaint.
We recommend that you check back with an ENT specialist so that a thorough evaluation is carried out regarding your complaint. Do the following steps to help resolve your complaint:
Take medication according to the doctor's advice Do not dig your ears with anything Avoid exposure to substances that often make you allergic, for example cold, etc. Keep your ears dry Never swim, dive, or travel to high areas. for a while Hope it helps ya ..
