Colds After The Eardrum Ruptures?
I was 2 months ago, the eardrum surgery kept getting colds, isn’t it dangerous?
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Need to be studied about the information on your symptoms. Keep in mind since when you have a cold, what is thought to be a trigger factor (exposure to cold weather, dust, smoke, preceded by coughs and colds accompanied by fever, or there are other conditions that trigger colds), other symptoms experienced (fever, pain in nose or cheek area, nasal congestion, decreased ability to smell, allergic history, history of similar illnesses, history of medication ever taken to treat these symptoms, it is also necessary to know the eardrum surgery performed by you (left / right ear operated on, type of surgery which is conducted).
Colds generally can occur along with other symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, fever, pain in the nose or throat area. Colds can be caused by several possible causes, such as infections in the respiratory tract area, especially the nose, allergic reactions to exposure to certain substances, reactions to cold weather, side effects of medications consumed, reactions when consuming spicy foods, or conditions that are unbalanced hormone regulation.
To ascertain your condition, it is advisable to consult an ENT doctor regarding the actions of your eardrum surgery for further examination and management. It is necessary to do a physical examination of the post-operative ear area and the condition of a cold that you experience, so that treatment plans can be done that are appropriate to your condition and do not endanger the condition of the eardrum.
Avoid using self-medication without doctor's instructions, avoid exposure to the environment with cold and dry air, minimize exposure to dust and smoke when traveling by using a mask, avoid smoking or vape, ensuring you get enough rest time.
Hopefully this information can help you,
