I accidentally got a cotton bud accidentally, then it bled for 2-3 days. The third day began to ache, so sore my ears. Sometimes it also feels itchy, so I put in a cotton bud slowly so that the itching decreases. But even more pain. I wonder how? I am afraid that there will be serious pain in my ear.

Hello Salsa,

Thank you for the question.

Scraping ears with any tool (including cotton bud) is not recommended. In addition to making the ears hurt, this action is also very risky to cause a torn ear drum and inflamed ears (otitis externa or otitis media). Furthermore, this inflammation can make the ears feel itchy, painful, swollen, impaired hearing, and even secreting excessive secretions.

Your condition, considering that it has been happening for days, should be checked immediately by a doctor or ENT doctor. There, doctors will be able to check the condition of your ears with a special instrument (otoscope) and then give him the best treatment.

At home, the pain that arises can you relieve first by taking paracetamol and increasing rest. Do not forget, do not carelessly put water, cotton buds, or other foreign objects into your ears.

Hope this helps ...
