Afternoon dock, I want to ask. I have a history of my ear tearing tear and I have a cold. Every time I swallow saliva, the pain is so painful to my ears, and for 2 days the head of the right side is so painful, even though I have been taking paracetamol and the medicine from the doctor has not changed. Please answer the dock. Thank you
Hello Elly, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Based on the complaints you mentioned, the headaches you mentioned can lead to various possibilities. Because the data I have is very limited, such as I do not know which ear is disturbed, when your lining is torn, if there are other complaints such as discharge from the ear, etc. will affect the enforcement of disease diagnosis. So the best thing right now is that you visit the doctor immediately for an examination.
But from the complaints that you feel, some of the possibilities include:
Chronic suppurative otitis media, etc.
The severe headache that you feel may be a symptom of CSOM complications that occur. But this is not certain, because there is still a lot of information about your complaint that is needed to direct to these complications. You should consult again to be evaluated from previous treatment.
Right now what you can do is:
Enough rest. It is recommended to sleep in a quiet and dark room.
Cold compresses on the back of the neck.
Carefully massage the affected part of the head.
Maintain a healthy and nutritious diet.
Avoid caffeinated drinks, alcohol, and smoking.
Continue consuming the medicine given by the doctor according to the dosage.
Consult a doctor if the complaint does not improve.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
