The Cause Of The Ear Aches And Bleeding After Cotton Bud Cotton?
Good night, I want to ask you before I put in a cotton bud, then I take it out with an aluminum ear cleaner, then there is blood, after that my ear hurts, what is the problem and what is the cure
Hello Arya, Thank you for the question.
Are there other symptoms such as discharge from the ear and hearing loss? The blood you see may be caused by the use of ear cleaning that causes irritation or injury to the ear canal. The presence of irritation or injury to the ear canal can cause pain. After irritation or injury to the ear canal, inflammation will usually occur in the surrounding area which can further cause ear pain. Do not rule out the blood you see is due to a tear in the eardrum because it uses ear cleanser that is too deep. Usually in addition to earaches, you can also feel hearing loss if the tears occur are large enough.
If there is no bleeding that is constantly coming out of the ear, you can monitor this symptom first. Please avoid inserting any objects into the ear and keep your ears clean and dry, avoid contact with water. To deal with pain, you can take paracetamol according to the rules of use on the drug packaging. If the symptoms of earaches do not improve for more than 3 days, or are accompanied by symptoms of hearing loss and high fever, please consult your nearest ENT doctor for further examination and treatment. However, if there is bleeding that does not stop from the ear, you should immediately go to the nearest emergency room so that it can be treated immediately.
I hope this helps.
