Hearing Is Reduced And Ears Ringing?
Good afternoon doctor, I want to ask about my right ear, after I went to the doctor it was cleaned by spraying it but my ear was still not normal, the hearing was still faint, and if my head was knocked I sounded stupid, and I tried to put drops. the water itself at home still sounds stupid .. When it was sprayed by the doctor I knocked on the head and the doctor said it would disappear by himself but how long will it be? I’ve also jumped but still ,. Do I have to go back again to check into the ENT and take TOPGESIC MEFENAMIC ACID / ANASTAN FORTE MEFENAMIC ACID? Thank you doctor
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
The hearing loss and ringing sensation (dung-dung-dung-dung) that you feel can be caused by the following conditions:
Middle ear infection (otitis media): ear feels full, painful, ringing, may be accompanied by discharge. Usually begins with an upper respiratory tract infection (cough, runny nose)
Outer ear infection (otitis externa): usually accompanied by pain, and can also be accompanied by a yellowish discharge
Earwax (cerumen prop)
Foreign body in ear
My advice is that you should discuss it again with the ENT doctor who examined you the other day to determine the cause. Because to find out your condition, you need a direct physical examination of your ears. And if necessary, your hearing function will also be checked.
The drugs you mentioned are painkillers. If the drug is given by a doctor, the drug may be continued according to the doctor's orders who examined you. However, if you buy the drug yourself without a doctor's prescription, you should not take it before discussing it with your doctor, so that you can determine whether you need to take the drug or not, and if necessary you can determine the correct and safe dose for you.
Some things you can do to improve your condition and prevent your disease from worsening:
Do not try to put any object / substance into the ear without a doctor's order, including water as you did before
Don't scrape your ears
Try to clean your ears at the ENT doctor and not use cotton swabs because you fear that they will go too deep, or there is a risk that the cotton will be left behind
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
