Fluid Discharge From The Ear Is Accompanied By Symptoms Of Ringing In The Ears?
Mlam, I want to ask, I often experience earaches in the last few months, my ears are ringing and I have a clear white discharge, I have bought ear drops at the pharmacy and after using some of my earaches healed, but after 1/2 the month of pain reappeared. the question is whether there is a problem with srius in my ear and what is the impact if left alone?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Fluid discharge from the ear accompanied by symptoms of ringing in the ear can be caused by several possibilities, including:
infection of the external ear or otitis externa
infection of the middle ear with eardrum perforation (otitis media perforation)
the presence of foreign objects in the ear
leakage of brain fluid after head injury
tumor of the ear
You should not drip any medication into the ear without checking a doctor first. If you experience disorders such as otitis media perforation, then dripping drugs into the ear can actually cause certain complications / side effects. We recommend that you check yourself to the ENT doctor first so you can clearly know the cause of the disturbance in your ear.
For now, there are several things you can do:
Avoid prying ears (including cotton buds) or putting anything in the ear
Avoid dripping certain drugs into the ear without consulting a doctor directly
Avoid swimming for a while until your doctor allows it
Be careful when you take a shower, you should cover your ears with ear plugs so that water does not get inside
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
