hello doctor, I want to ask my little child if every cold has to not come out of the nose but from the ear …. 4 times already, I have brought to the doctor what is allergic but allergic … what is the solution and what is the medicine

1 Answer:

Dear Solomon,

The discharge from the ear makes sense during a cold or allergic condition, because in fact the ear, nose and throat are a separate part. However, the ear itself is divided into 3 parts, namely the outer, middle and inner ear, and is limited by the eardrum and cochlear. The middle ear itself is connected to the throat by a tube called the eustachian tube. And since the throat is connected to the nose, it makes sense that mucus from the respiratory tract around the nose and throat could flow into the middle ear. What needs to be a statement is why the fluid can come out into the outer ear even though there is an eardrum that limits it. Obviously the answer is that the eardrum is no longer intact and usually tearing occurs as a result of a previous infection, or because of a hole in the habit of picking the ear.

The ear discharge should be cleaned of fluid and you cannot use any ear drops because the space containing the ear nerves has become one with the outer ear so that certain ear medications can cause nerve damage to the ear which results in deafness. For this we can only recommend to go back to the Ear Nose Throat doctor to get the best treatment. Here we attach an article about ear discharge. May be useful.
