Ear Pain Accompanied By A Full Sensation Such As Intruding Water?
Asallamualaikum we.wb. I want to ask?? these days my ears hurt so much. At first my ears were filled with water (grebek “) so after that I cleaned it using cutenbat, but there was no dirt in the future, I also experienced the same thing, but I cleaned there was no dirt, it felt like pain. The ENT said that there was hardened dirt in the ear, after that I was given pain medication and drops then 3 days later was told to control again, so from here I was a little confused, why did it harden? Even though I always clean my ears ??
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Complaints of ear pain accompanied by a full sensation such as submission of water can be caused by several possibilities, which often include:
Acute otitis externa (inflammation of the external ear, complaints in the form of severe ear pain when the earlobe is pulled / touched, swollen or reddish on the ear canal or canal, fever, which may be accompanied by discharge from the ear; can be related to a history of swimming or fluid intake / foreign object)
Serumen prop (the result of the production of glands in the ear that hardens and ear plugs)
Acute otitis media (inflammation of the middle ear, complaints in the form of ear pain, ear feel full / blocked sensation, decreased hearing function, fever, can be accompanied by a discharge or fever; usually associated with a history of infection in the upper respiratory tract that blocks the Eustachian tubes [connecting channel between the nasopharynx and middle ear] so that symptoms of cough, runny nose and nasal congestion can be found)
We recommend that you check yourself directly to the doctor or doctor specialist THTagar can be evaluated and given appropriate treatment. The doctor will take an history about the history of the disease, as well as a physical examination of the external ear, then use an otoscope (hearing aid) to examine the deeper parts of the ear.
Earwax hardens although they feel often cleaned themselves may occur due to lack of certain parts of the ear canal. In addition, there may be a mistake in the effort to clean the ears themselves so that the cotton bud that is used actually pushes the earwax deeper and does not reach and hardens. We advise you to clean earwax with a doctor or ENT specialist to avoid complications.
As a suggestion at home, you should avoid the habit of digging into the ear canal and minimize the touch / pull on the ailing ear.
