Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Impact / injury to the ear can result in several conditions, depending on the mechanism of occurrence, such as:
Bleeding within the skin (bruising / hematoma) on the earlobe or inside the ear Wound on the ear Rupture of the eardrum Based on your exposure, the condition you are experiencing is probably a bruise (bleeding into the skin) on the earlobe or in the medical world it is called a preauricular hematoma.
However, we cannot confirm without a physical examination.
Therefore, to ascertain the cause of the complaint, it is better to consult further with a general practitioner first. The doctor will further explore the mechanism of the impact and will perform a direct examination of the ear or with a special instrument, namely an otoscope or ear funnel, as well as check your brother's hearing function. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for these conditions in accordance with the underlying conditions. If necessary, the doctor will refer your sister to an ENT doctor.
Things that should be done to improve symptoms and prevent worsening are:
Avoid picking your ears with your fingers or a cotton bud. Prevent your ears from getting water, dirt, or foreign objects. Avoid using earphones for long periods of time, and listening to sounds (such as music) that are too loud to prevent further damage and maintain ear health. If the fluid comes out, the ears can be cleaned with clean gauze when the fluid reaches the edges of the ears. That's my explanation, hopefully it helps and is useful. Get well soon :)
