hello, I want to ask u003cstrong u003e u003c / strong u003Why can hearing loss be accompanied by vertigo and discharge from the ear?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically there are many things that can cause hearing loss accompanied by discharge from the ear and also vertigo, here are some possibilities:
severe otitis externa causing swelling of the entire ear canal
otitis media with perforation of the eardrum
hardened earwax blockage
the presence of foreign objects that plug the ears
tumor of the ear
head injury and fracture / crack on the skull
You should immediately check yourself to the ENT doctor if you experience these symptoms. Your ear must get a direct examination and the cause must also be found and treated immediately so that no permanent hearing loss occurs.
For now, avoid prying your ears either with cotton buds, ear scrapers, fingers, or other sharp objects. Do not drip certain medicines or traditional ingredients into your ears except on the instructions of your doctor. For a while as long as it is not clear whether there is a tear in your eardrum or not, you should be more careful when bathing (do not get water entering the ear), and avoid swimming or diving for a while until your doctor allows it.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
