Handling Of Ear Pain?
, I have pain in my left ear (my ears hurt, reddened, swollen, and in my ears like fluid) maybe because before I entered the water because I swam about 1 week ago, I thought all the water came out (I tried by covering my nose and mouth then exhale udra in the mouth) but at night 2 days after that the left lower head hurts, then the next day I have a fever but because I have pracetamol I recover. I realize that after cleaning my ears with a cutton bud, from my left ear, I really hurt my scalp and even chewed. / moving the jaw hurts … Is my left ear infection already severe so I have to go to the doctor? Atw only with ear drops can be cured …

Related to your complaint, you may have an infection in the external ear, also known as otitis externa. Otitis externa is a disorder in the external ear (from the auricle) to the ear hole that borders the eardrum. Sensation of pain and discomfort in the ear is a complaint that is often experienced. The cause can be caused by injury or trauma such as excessive use of cotton buds when cleaning ear holes, bacterial, viral or fungal infections that can be carried away from the environment.
The possibility of other diseases such as otitis media also can not be ruled out. Otitis media is an infection or inflammation in the middle ear, starting from the eardrum to the border with the inner ear. Otitis media has several phases before the injury to the eardrum can discharge fluid / pus.
Therefore, to ensure your illness, you should do an examination with a ENT specialist doctor directly. The doctor will conduct an examination and evaluation using a tool that can assess the condition of your ears. The doctor will also provide appropriate medication handling according to the results of the examination found.
Avoid cleaning the ear with a cotton bud or any object inserted by the ear to reduce the symptoms that are felt without direct instructions from the doctor.
