Colds To Hearing Loss?
I David how many days I have a cold and the effect on this ear on the ear Uda healed so the effect on the nose and throat why
Hello David, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Infection and inflammation of the airways can indeed cause complications to the ear as well. Between the middle ear and nasopharynx there is a channel called the eustachian tube. This tube serves to regulate the pressure in the middle ear and remove the fluid and mucus produced in the middle ear. When you have an infection or inflammation in the airways, the eustachian tube can be blocked out. Blockage of the Eustachian tube can cause infection / inflammation of the middle ear or what is called otitis media.
Most respiratory infections are caused by viruses, and the virus will basically heal by itself without the need for certain drugs. When the symptoms of a viral infection subside and inflammation in the airways also subside, the blockage in the eustachian tube will improve and inflammation of the middle ear can also improve by itself. However, if you experience extreme pain in your ears, hearing loss, or odorous discharge from your ear, you should immediately consult a ENT doctor. Doctors sometimes have to prescribe antibiotics if there is a suspected bacterial infection in the middle ear.
To help relieve ear pain, you can take painkillers such as paracetamol and compress the outside of the affected ear with warm compresses. make sure you don't drip certain ear drops before getting a doctor's check-up.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
