Medication To Treat The Ear Yellow Discharge In Children?
BismillahDok I want to ask what is the medicine for children if their ears keep watering? It doesn’t hurt just water comes out of yellow ears.
Thank you for the question.
Yellowish discharge from the ear, if the amount is small, does not flow continuously, may not be a dangerous condition. This liquid may be a part of cerumen that can be produced more, for example when a child has been exposed to allergens, has been scraped by excessive earring, or also has been infused with certain foreign objects into his ear.
However, if there is a lot of fluid that comes out, flows continuously, smells bad, or makes it difficult for children to hear, burrows and swollen redness, ears buzzing, fever, or other complaints appear more severe, meaning you still need to check it directly to doctor, ENT doctor, or pediatrician, even though he does not feel pain. Because, it could be, excess fluid that comes out in his ear indicates he has otitis externa (inflammation of the external ear), torn ear drum, otitis media (inflammation of the middle ear), ear infections (such as due to fungus or bacteria), and many other medical conditions the other. Handling must be done quickly and precisely so that this condition does not cause more serious complications, including the spread of infection to other organs if indeed your child's condition occurs related to the infection.
As an initial treatment, before going to the doctor, you can do the following steps:
Watery ear plugs with sterile gauze
Do not carelessly put anything (including cotton buds, water, wire, or medicine) into the child's ear
Calm the child, ask him to rest a lot
Hope this helps ...
