Hearing Loss In Children?
HealthReplies.com. Thank you for your time. I want to ask, my first child often does not hear my words. I just checked that his sister’s eyes turned out to be cylindrical, I asked her brother clearly if he saw the board, he said clearly, he just didn’t hear when the teacher said. I immediately bowed. I feel guilty. I know that it’s my fault. When he was little, I often snapped. Because the condition is tired, 8 months pregnant again, the first child often gets impingement. I am very sorry. What should I do to fix my fatal error? I don’t want my child to continue to have difficulty hearing. I’m afraid the eardrum has a problem because of my screams. I wish I could use BPJS. How’s the procedure? Considering my financial condition is not qualified to go to ENT specialist. thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are also concerned about your child's condition. First we need to make sure in advance whether there is a hearing loss in your child. Not hearing when the teacher speaks does not necessarily make him have a hearing loss. It could be that the teacher's voice was indeed small, sitting in the back of the class so far away from the teacher, or the condition of the classroom and the surrounding noise making it difficult for him to hear. Although regardless of whether he does have a hearing loss or not, yelling at a child is not a good thing from any aspect.
Therefore, it is important to check your child, which if you have difficulty to immediately check it to the ENT doctor, first check it with a doctor at the health center in your first level health facility. The puskesmas doctor will probably use a tuning fork and a special tool to look into your child's ear canal. If indeed the eardrum has ruptured, will be known through this examination.
Then if the puskesmas doctor really thinks he has a hearing loss and needs an ENT doctor's treatment, your child will be referred to an ENT doctor in a class C or D. hospital. The treatment he will receive later will depend on the results of the examination, because there are many causes for hearing loss. So, hopefully answering your question.
