Hi Elislan,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

The ear is divided into 3 parts, namely the outer, middle, and inner ear. Between the outer ear (auricle, outer ear canal) and the middle (hearing ossicles) is limited by a thin membrane called the eardrum. The eardrum attaches to the auditory ossicles and plays an important role in the process of sound conduction.

Mechanical trauma due to punctured cotton buds can cause a tear in the eardrum. This condition can cause the ear to bleed. Furthermore, sound conduction disorders due to a torn eardrum can also cause sufferers to experience hearing loss. If it happens to a baby aged 20 months, it is not impossible that this can also have an impact on speech delays.

In addition, it may also be bleeding from your child's ear caused by irritation of the ear canal. In this case, the patient may also experience hearing loss, but the appearance is usually only temporary. After the inflammation caused by the irritation subsides, the sound conduction will return to normal as usual.

To assess the cause of your child's complaints, you should take him directly to an ENT specialist. Through direct inspection using an otoscope, the doctor can evaluate in more detail the extent of the damage. If it is true that the eardrum is torn, then if the tear is small, then in children the union can occur spontaneously without special treatment. However, if the tear is large enough, the doctor can perform tympanoplasty (ear drum replacement).

Both a torn eardrum and irritation of the external ear canal can make it easier for sufferers to develop infections into the middle ear. This condition needs to be prevented, because it can have serious consequences, including permanent deafness and the spread of infection to other parts of the body. Therefore, you should also do the following tips:

Avoid picking at the child's ear with sharp objects, including cotton buds, wire, matches. To keep the ears clean, just clean the earlobe, for example when taking a bath. Keep the child's ears dry (cover when bathing the child) Regularly control your child's hearing function go to an ENT specialist every 6 months Hope this helps..
