Solutions For Hearing Loss In Children Aged 7 Years?
Mlm… My daughter is 7 years old. Almost a week my daughter complained about her right ear. Every sound he spoke didn’t sound clear like something was blocking him, he gave an example by covering one ear and then speaking. So that’s how he felt. But if other people’s voices can be heard clearly, there is no dirt in the ears. But I noticed he was still active and agile in playing. I haven’t had time to take him to the doctor yet. According to the doctor, what help should I do and what do you think is the cause? Thank you in advance..
Hi Miss Ernie,
Hearing loss in children can be caused by several conditions, including:
ear infection or wax
an injury, such as a torn eardrum or a fracture in the bone around the ear
taking drugs such as streptomycin (antibiotics), aspirin, chemotherapy drugs such as cisplatin
acoustic trauma, i.e. exposure to very loud sounds
The exact cause of your child's complaints can only be known through direct examination. in many cases, children and adults experience total blockage of the external ear canal by cerumen (earwax) which is only visible with a special instrument called an otoscope. So you should take the time to see a doctor.
what you can do now is to avoid using cotton buds because it is feared that it will push earwax deeper, avoid exposure to very loud sounds and also immediately consult a doctor.
that's all, hope it's useful
