How To Deal With Ear Pain And Discharge With Blood?
Sorry, yesterday afternoon my ear was very painful and at night it bled suddenly. At first I thought because I was blowing my nose too tightly, I just happened to have a cold. I immediately took the treatment to the ER and the doctor said there were insects in my ear. I was prescribed paracetamol and gentacimin antibiotics after the doctor cleaned my ears. But until this morning my ears are still aching and emitting colored fluid seems to be mixed with blood, what I want to ask is this normal ?? Do I need to see the ENT doctor? Thank you
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
In the condition that occurs to you at this time there is the possibility of animals / foreign objects in the ear that can cause symptoms of pain, the sensation of hearing loss or the ear feels full, or feels there is movement in the ear canal. In addition, if the insect secretes toxins or is not alive can trigger inflammatory reactions and infections in the associated ear canal. Ear canal / ear canal may appear red, swollen, painful, clear / pus discharge, or blood if there is a wound in the ear canal.
One treatment that can be given is to kill the insect first if the insect is still alive with lidocaine spray, and extract the dead carcass from the ear canal. Cleanse the ear canal with an antiseptic and use an antibiotic ointment on the ear, administering pain medication and medication according to the clinical symptoms that you are experiencing can also be given.
If after the treatment is given still mixed with blood, it is advisable to go to an ENT specialist for further examination and management related to your condition. Inform your specialist about the treatments you have received, including the consumption of pain medications and antibiotics that you have started to consume. Avoid stopping / changing the treatment regimen yourself without doctor's instructions. For information on similar discussions, you can access this link.
