Handling Of The Ear That Has Been Absorbed By Animals?
Morning. I’m Rini 35th. This morning when my condition was still asleep, my ears suddenly entered by an animal that made me immediately wake up. I heard a roar before the animal finally entered my ear. It sounds like a mosquito or a fly, but after I remember it it’s like a fly. I also didn’t know there were flies trapped in the house all night because when I was still in bed before I didn’t see flies. If there are flies in the mornings, I don’t know since it has been raining a lot of small flies. Even though the floor has been mopped, flies still come when you open the door. It seems like it was flying fast and stuck into my ear to the right while I was sleeping, supine position. Automatically I immediately closed the left ear hole, but the animal still could not get out. I have covered my left ear with my finger for more than an hour. Until my hand aches. There was still buzzing activity in the ear like trying to fly, now there’s no more. The ear feels uncomfortable. And my hand went to the left wrist, covering the ear hole. What should I do. what I’m worried about is if it really flies, I’m afraid it will lay eggs in my ears, imagine really disgusted. Dangerous or not yes. Is after the animal died in the ear can ear wax and can come out on its own like most earwax? Please ask for advice. It’s very annoying. Thank you in advance.
Thank you for the question.
The ear can indeed sometimes enter foreign objects, including flies. Indeed, this condition can make the ear feel uncomfortable, because it appears annoying noises until the fly finally dies. But that's not all, the presence of flies in your ear can also cause hearing loss and trigger inflammation in the ear (otitis externa or media) that makes the ears feel painful, swollen burrows, increased secretion production, and sometimes even trigger fever, jaw stiffness, swallowing pain, and various other complaints. When confined to the ear with minimal food sources, flies often cannot survive for long. Therefore, by itself later he will die, not lay eggs as you worry. But indeed, not all of these flies or carcasses can later come out on their own. In some rare cases, this fly or carcass can also be removed with the help of a doctor.
Even so, the conditions that you experience are not necessarily caused by the introduction of flies. Other conditions, such as Meniere's disease, hypertension, head or neck injuries, accumulation of earwax, malformations of blood vessels around the ears, and so on can also cause annoying noises in the ear like when infested with flies.
So, if indeed your complaint is very disturbing, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or ENT doctor, don't leave it. With medication, extraction of foreign matter, or other therapeutic modalities, often your complaints can be overcome.
Meanwhile, at this time you should no longer close your ears excessively. This action will not necessarily make you comfortable, nor will it make the fly come out automatically back to your right ear. Just keep your ears clean, dry, and no longer possessed by foreign objects. Do not carelessly pry, or drop anything into your ear (including water or medicine). Do not forget, always keep the cleanliness of the house where you live so that not much is infested by flies that are a source of disease.
Hope this helps ...
