Left Ear Pain Accompanied By Discharge And Hearing Loss
Good afternoon. 3 days ago my ear hurt (left side) until it drained and made my ears become uncomfortable and even felt sore. thank God it didn’t cause the fever and headache that I used to feel. Due to the outbreak of corona outbreaks, I was afraid to see an ENT doctor.
Hello Joko, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Based on the complaint you feel, there are several possible diseases that occur to you, namely:
Chronic suppurative otitis media
Acute otitis media
Serumen prop, etc.
To be sure, you should do a check up with a general practitioner or ENT specialist. Because it needs to be seen the state of your ears, especially in the affected part. Warm water compresses can help reduce pain, but do not put other fluids besides ear drops into the ear, especially those that are sick. For the use of ottopain drugs and antibiotics, should be based on doctor's recommendation or prescription. This is because, although you have previously experienced complaints that are almost the same as now, but not necessarily the cause of your complaint is currently caused by the same thing. Therefore, it is necessary to check with a doctor before taking your own medicines.
Right now what you can do is:
Avoid prying ears that hurt.
Do not insert objects or liquids into a sore ear.
If you have a cold, you can take cold medicines that are sold freely at the pharmacy.
To reduce pain, you can take painkillers such as paracetamol, iburprofen, etc.
Consult a doctor if complaints become more severe.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
