Causes Of Smelly Ears In Children Aged 1 Year?
Assalamu alaikum, my child is 1 year old, his ear smells why yes
Good evening Hulfa, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
The causes of odor in the ear are very diverse such as the buildup of earwax, the presence of insects or objects that enter the ear and cause infection, fungal or bacterial infections of the external ear (otitis externa), middle ear infection (otitis media), and several other causes .
Because there are quite a number of possible causes, it is highly recommended that you conduct further examination of this complaint to the ENT doctor for further evaluation of the condition of your child's ear, after which the doctor will determine what treatment is most appropriate to be given to overcome the complaint .
In the meantime, do not try to clean your child's own ears, either using cotton buds, ear drops or other materials that are inserted into the ear because it can possibly cause injury or irritation to the ear. Also make sure your child's ears do not enter water or insert objects / insects. Also avoid your child's hands so they don't try to pick their ears.
Henceforth, follow the doctor's advice during the treatment period for the cause of the complaint. Also do an ear examination and ear cleaning thoroughly to the ENT doctor, especially if you feel a complaint in the ear.
I hope this helps.
