The Ear Comes Out Of Pus And Water, Sores, And Feels Like It Has Been Stuck In Water?
Tonight doctor, I am 23 years old. I have an earache for about 2 months. I think the infection, because on the side of the cheek there is a lump caused by ear pain earlier, I initially cleaned the ear but after a long time came out sores and proceed out of water after that pus. And now it’s like getting in water. I went to the doctor and gave the medicine but it still doesn’t heal. Please explain. Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Pain in the ear can be caused by several possibilities, including:
ear plugging due to hardened earwax (cerumen prop)
external ear infection (otitis externa) middle ear infection (otitis media) the presence of a foreign body in the ear ear pain caused by pain in other places, such as infection of the teeth and gums, disorders of the jaw joints (temporomandibular joint disorder), dental impaction, infection in the throat or tonsils, if you have done treatment to the doctor and the condition of your ear has not improved, it helps you return control to the doctor so that you can re-evaluate and further treatment. If you previously went to a general practitioner, you can ask for a referral to the ENT doctor so that the examination can be done with more complete tools.
For now, some of what you can do:
Avoid scraping your ears (with cotton buds, ear scrapers, fingers, or other objects) Take pain relievers such as paracetamol to help reduce pain (this drug will not treat your problem completely, only to relieve pain) the use of ear drops before you see your doctor directly Compress the outside of the ear with warm or cold compresses to help reduce pain
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
