Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Before determining the treatment for your complaint, of course, you must first know what is the cause of your hearing loss.
Hearing impairment can be caused by the following diseases:
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). If left untreated, this infection can last for a long time and cause damage to the ear and surrounding area
Outer ear infection (otitis externa): usually accompanied by pain, and can also be accompanied by a yellowish discharge
Ear wax that clogs (cerumen prop)
Foreign body in ear
To ascertain the cause of your complaint, it is better to consult further with an ENT specialist. The doctor will further explore your complaint and will conduct an ear examination with a special tool, namely an otoscope or ear funnel, and check your hearing function with a tuning fork. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your complaint according to the underlying conditions.
Some things you can do to improve your condition and prevent your disease from worsening:
If the liquid comes out, you can use clean gauze to clean the liquid on the outside.
Avoid picking your ears with your fingers or a cotton swab
Avoid using earphones for a long period of time, and listening to sounds (e.g. music) that are too loud to prevent further damage and maintain ear health
Also prevent the ears from getting into water, dirt, or foreign objects
If your ears feel sore, you can take over-the-counter pain medications such as paracetamol.
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful :)
