Good night. I yesterday scratched my ear and when it wasn’t there I felt sick. It’s just a little uncomfortable I think clogged dirt. And yesterday I was also fine. But just now suddenly when my friend was talking his voice suddenly seemed like there were two or echoed in my ears. So I’m scared. Why is that? And what is the solution?
Hello, Alynsa, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hearing echoing sounds in the ear can have several possible causes:
1. Impacted ear wax / wax that hardens and clogs the ear canal
2. Otitis externa (inflammation of the outer ear and ear canal)
3. Otitis media (inflammation of the middle ear)
4.Auditival tube insufficiency (impaired function of the channel that connects the ear and throat) due to flu, cold, or a lump in the throat
5. Otomycosis (fungal infection of the ear)
Check with your doctor or ENT doctor if the complaints have not gone away, accompanied by pain, itching in the ears, fever, ringing, and hearing loss. The exact cause of the complaint can only be determined from a doctor's examination. The doctor will ask you about everything about your complaints, and will do an examination of the ears, nose and throat. If necessary, supporting examinations such as blood tests will be carried out. After the cause is identified, then the treatment can be determined.
At this time, you should not put anything in the ear (especially ear licks, because picking your ears without "seeing" can make the wax even more pressure into the ear canal and build up and clog over time. If you want to clean your ears, it's best to see a doctor. or ENT doctor). Keep the ears clean and dry (don't let water get in first), don't hear any sounds that are too loud and loud, and if you feel pain you can take paracetamol or ibuprofen. Immediately to the doctor to be examined and given appropriate therapy according to the cause and severity.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
Greetings, dr. Sarah Rizqia.
