How To Clean Ears After Using Drops?
Hello DokI today has a disruption in the right ear that feels closed, I was sent to the health center with Phenol Glycerol drops, which I asked about how to clean the ears after using this drug? Thank you
Hello Pahot, Thank you for the question.
Do you know the cause of this closed ear? Ears that feel closed can be accompanied by other symptoms such as earaches, itchy ears, ear discharge, tinnitus, fever, headache, dizziness. Some causes of the ear feeling closed are:
buildup of earwax
impaired function of the Eustachian tube which connects the middle ear to the cavity of the ear and throat
Phenol glyserol is a drug that has an antiseptic function. This drug is usually used to clean the ears by breaking up large earwax into small pieces. After using this medicine, it is recommended that you check with your doctor again so that the doctor can do further ear cleaning with the equipment available at the puskesmas. After cleaning your ears, the doctor will re-examine your ears to determine whether the cause is only due to earwax or other conditions. Further treatment will be determined by the doctor after ascertaining the conditions that underlie your symptoms. In the meantime, please use this medicine according to doctor's instructions and avoid putting anything in the ear. Keep the ears dry.
I hope this helps.
