Handling For The Ear Feels Full In The History Of The Ruptured Eardrum
, want to ask … I have complaints in the ear. At the end of December 2019, my eardrum broke and was treated. And declared cured at the beginning of February. But today my ears are fluid and smelly and my ears feel full. After I drop the H2O2 it feels better. But now it feels full again. Situation at the time of this outbreak. I am somewhat horrified when going outside the house and visiting the ENT doctor. The question is, is it safe and well when visiting an ENT doctor. Sorry…

We understand the concerns that you feel.
Based on the information you have given, it is likely that you have chronic inflammation in the middle ear that causes the discharge from the lost ear to occur accompanied by the smell. This condition in medical language is called chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM). The disease occurs due to infection in the middle ear, which usually occurs more than 2 months. Liquid can be either ordinary clear liquid or pus.
However, to be sure, it needs a direct examination to determine the type of abnormality that is experienced. Some other possibilities that also have similar symptoms include otitis externa / inflammation of the external ear, or acute otitis media.
Direct inspection is needed to identify whether there are any danger signs that might be found if CSOM is indicated. If a picture of tissue growth in the middle ear or eardrum is found, operative measures should be considered.
In the condition of ear discharge accompanied by a feeling of fullness, pain and fever, it is recommended that you immediately check with your nearest ENT specialist doctor.
As long as you maintain your personal hygiene, by washing your hands frequently using soap and hand sanitizers, using mouth and nose mask covers and keeping a minimum distance of 1 meter from others, you don't need to worry about going to hospitals / crowded places. Besides maintaining endurance with the consumption of nutritious food, adequate body fluids every day, adequate rest and regular exercise at home is also important to do to prevent transmission of diseases caused by viruses or other germs.
Keep your ears clean and keep them dry. When the liquid comes out, clean it carefully and given ear drops that are special antiseptic. If the pus is still out, it can be considered for oral antibiotics based on doctor's recommendation. If symptoms do not improve within 3 months, operative measures can be considered if any signs of danger are found.
In this case, conducting an examination or referring to an ENT specialist is highly recommended for further examination. If not handled properly, the risk of hearing loss and hearing loss can occur.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
