Do you mean that the ear secretes pus? Pus discharge from the ear is most often caused by an infection in the middle ear canal or otitis media. Otitis media is inflammation of the middle ear due to a blockage and infection. Symptoms of otitis media include fever, pain in the ear, hearing loss, and discharge from the ear canal.
The first thing that occurs in otitis media is blockage of the Eustachian tube, then inflammation and redness occur in the ear canal, pus forms in the ear canal, then the eardrum ruptures so that the pus comes out of the ear hole. When there is a ruptured eardrum, the eardrum can recover automatically, but it can also remain open and cause recurring complaints. If the eardrum remains open further treatment is needed by the ENT doctor.
If you experience pus discharge, the best step is to check with your ENT doctor first. The doctor will examine the condition of your ear and provide more appropriate treatment for you. Handling can be by washing the ears using special solutions, antibiotics if necessary, and medicines to reduce symptoms.
The ear drops you mentioned both contain different types of antibiotics. Please note that the use of ear drops containing antibiotics should only be done on the advice of a doctor who checks and is done with a doctor's supervision. Not all antibiotic ear drops can be used in the case of a ruptured eardrum because some antibiotics are feared to damage the auditory nerve. If antibiotic drops are needed, the doctor will give ear drops containing antibiotics that are safer and do not damage your auditory nerve.
While waiting for the doctor, you can do the following tips:
Do not pry the ears Clean the pus that comes out with sterile gauze, just clean the outside Just avoid prying the ears with a cotton bud or other device Keep the ear from entering water Delay swimming and traveling by plane until allowed by the doctor Avoid exposure to loud and loud sounds Hopefully it can help you ,
