Hello, dook. R nDok my child is 8 months old and there is pus in his ears but it doesn’t come out. How.? Is that a sign of “snickering.? Please explain. Thank you.

Apart from that, from the information that Faisol conveyed, it still did not lead to a particular disease in particular, the presence of something resembling pus but did not come out in the ear could also be caused by

The suggestion for you is that when you bathe your child, try to prevent fluid from entering the ear, because the risk of causing inflammation in the middle ear, also avoid giving ear drops without a doctor's consideration, especially when the condition of the ear canal is secreting fluid like pus, because the drum is suspected. ear tear / hole, where some ear drops can actually damage the nerves and organs of the inner ear if given inappropriately.
