I have a budek in the left ear and brown fluid but does not smell, I have not gone to the ENT doctor because before I had experienced it and within 3 days healed, But what I experienced now is more than 3 days and I experienced obstacles when because of my ears. I beg for a solution. Thank you
Ear discharge can be caused by otitis media. Otitis media is an infection and inflammation of the middle ear canal. Symptoms are pain in the ear, discharge from the ear, buzzing ears, decreased hearing, and sometimes fever.
But in addition to otitis media, complaints of discharge from the ear can also be caused by other conditions such as trauma and otitis externa. To be sure, it needs to be examined directly by the doctor.
Because your condition has been more than 3 days and is accompanied by hearing loss, I further recommend that you see a ENT doctor so that further tests can be done to ascertain the cause of the discharge, if necessary an otoscope examination, audiometry, tympanometry, CT scan, and MRI. After your condition is confirmed, your doctor can give you more appropriate treatment, for example with antibiotics, painkillers, and if necessary certain actions.
While waiting to see a doctor, you should keep your ear so as not to get in other fluids, avoid swimming for a while, consult your doctor if you are going to travel by plane in the near future, avoid exposure to noise and loud noise, and avoid using a headset for a while yes.
Hope it helps you,
