My ear has a clear fluid but it doesn’t smell bad. After I used antibiotic drops, there was pain in the middle of my ear, and the fluid stopped. After about 1 month, the fluid came out again. I asked for a solution for the treatment, because I am one of the people. who have a lot of activity related to other people. Thank you, I’m waiting for the solution..

Hi Ikhsan, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand that with your condition where you meet a lot of other people, discharge from the ear can be very disturbing. Discharge from the ear can be caused by an infection from the canal or external ear canal, or from the middle ear canal if there is a hole from the eardrum. A hole in the eardrum is one thing you should be suspicious of, especially if you have a history of the same complaint as a child.


To be sure of this, you need to see an ENT specialist to see through a special tool whether your eardrum is perforated or not. If you have a hole, because the middle ear is directly related to the cavity in the nose, if you have a cold, whether it's due to allergies, flu, infection or others, the fluid that originally came from the nose can rise and come out through the ear. This condition, unfortunately, is not given further treatment other than treating the infection or allergy. Which means, if at any time you are infected again, the fluid can come out again.


There is indeed a procedure called a tympanoplasty, where the hole in the eardrum can be closed again, but this is a complicated surgical procedure and is not routinely performed in non-critical conditions.


However, discharge from the ear is a typical symptom of an infection or allergy, regardless of whether your eardrum is perforated or not. So you should go back to the ENT, so that you are immediately given medicine for your condition. Get well soon.


That's all, hope it helps.
