Right Ear Pain And Reddish-brown Fluid Comes Out?
Excuse me doctor, I’m a teenager aged 18 years. I have a pain in the ear, because I often clean the ear. But recently I have just had pain in the right ear, and also a brown liquid mixed with red. If I clean it, I will definitely get white colored dirt, I also often complain of sudden pain (sudden), and also disturb my hearing. Sorry for what? And how to treat it? thanks.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints that you experience can occur due to various possibilities, including:
Otomikosis Otitis External Otitis Media Entry of foreign objects Irritation And other possibilities also depend on the results of the examination. Regarding your habits, it's actually true that we should keep our ear canal clean, but our bodies have done it so we don't have to do it ourselves. The ear canal has its own cleaning mechanism using fine hairs and muscles in the area to remove periodic impurities that have been captured in the ear. Even if it is for one reason or another, the dirt in your ears accumulates and cannot be handled naturally by your body, you still don't need to clean it yourself, come to the ENT doctor and ask to be cleaned. This is important because to avoid things like this, in the form of accumulation of earwax, irritation, injury, and infection.
Our advice, check yourself to the ENT doctor to get a more complete examination, using a special tool to see the contents of your ear canal. Later it will be discovered, where did the white earwax come from, and why it can disturb your hearing. The treatment you will receive later will depend on the results of this examination, which is most likely in the form of special ear drops.
Meanwhile, for now and in the future, avoid the habit of cleaning your own ears, whether it's using a cotton bud or other assistive devices. Also avoid inserting fingers and water, avoid swimming for a while, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
