Drug For Ear Infections In Children?
Mlm My son aged 8 years he had bathed the river in his ear, put in water. Now it has runny ears and there is fluid coming out. I wonder why and what medicine? Thank you
Hello Rizkhy, thank you for asking.
River water certainly contains various microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. In addition, river water also contains many foreign particles. Microorganisms can cause infections. Foreign particles can cause injury or irritation, which ends in infection.
Infection can occur in the external ear or middle ear. External ear infections generally cause ear pain when touched or not, pain sometimes feels throbbing, may be accompanied by headaches, pain can radiate to the jaw, and on physical examination found a red ear canal and swollen.
Middle ear infection accompanied by severe pain, hearing loss, and possibly headaches. If the middle ear infection is not treated, pus will form that accumulates in the middle ear cavity. The pus must be removed by making a small hole in the eardrum. If the pus is not removed by the doctor, the eardrum will tear and the pus drains out of the ear canal, causing the ear to always runny. A torn ear drum may heal and close again, maybe not. If the eardrum does not close, the ear will easily re-infection and there is hearing loss.
Please consult this matter with your doctor. The doctor will check whether there is an eardrum tear or not. Ear drops will be adjusted to the doctor's suspicion of the cause of the infection.
Before you consult a doctor, please do not dig your ears with anything including fingers, and do not shed anything without doctor's advice.
Hopefully this answer is helpful. Regards.
