How To Remove Snot From The Ear?
hello, I was 20 years ago I wanted to blow my nose maybe too hard to the ears. how to deal with snot coming into the ear thanks in advance
Hello Anggrid, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
The anatomy of the nose has a direct channel to the middle ear, this channel is also called the eustachian tube. The function of the eustachian tube is apparently useful for equalizing pressure in and outside the ear. Therefore, when you have a cold, runny nose, runny nose will usually be associated with the middle ear and ears feel full.
However, when the snot secretion comes out of the ear, it is necessary to suspect that the eardrum is ruptured. The middle ear is limited by a membrane called the eardrum. If you make a large pressure for example when removing snot, it can cause pressure in the middle ear to increase causing a roberk eardrum, resulting in the discharge of 'runny nose' melalyi ears.
For this reason, it is necessary to re-ascertain whether the secretions coming out of the ear are the "snot" from the nose or the secretions from the ears. To turn it off requires an interview and a direct physical examination. Because if the eardrum is damaged, it can cause other complications that are not cold and require special treatment and care. If you have this condition, you should further consult a specialist ENT (Ear Nose Throat) specialist at the nearest hospital for further examination and appropriate treatment.
Blowing your nose when you have a cold is actually not prohibited as long as it is not too loud because it is blowing your nose too hard because it can cause injury to the ear organ for example tearing of the eardrum. If the flu or runny nose should consult a doctor to reduce symptoms.
That's all the answers from us, hopefully it's useful
