The Ear Hurts And Produces A Yellow, Smelly Liquid?
Doctor night. Sorry, I want to ask that my ear hurts and has yellow discharge and odor. I’ve been to the doctor but only sucked using a tool and given medicine but not recovered. There is a right solution. Sometimes dry does not come out but sometimes it suddenly comes out runny. Thank you
Hello Aryo86, Thank you for the question.
Complaints of ear pain accompanied by discharge from the ear caused by an infection of the middle ear (otitis media). Otitis media is an infection of the middle ear which can cause inflammation and a buildup of fluid in the middle ear. More and more fluid buildup can compress the eardrum and cause tears in the eardrum so that the fluid can come out of the ear. Apart from otitis media, discharge from the ear can also be caused by otitis externa and eardrum tears due to other causes such as trauma.
If your complaints have not improved, you are strongly advised to go back to the ENT specialist who examined you. Why? Because only with a doctor's examination will know the cause, whether this condition is caused by previous conditions that have not been handled properly or other conditions. After confirming, the doctor will provide further treatment. Without knowing the cause, the doctor cannot provide appropriate treatment. For the time being, please avoid putting anything in your ear. You can clean the liquid that comes out of the ear with a clean cloth. You should keep your ears dry and clean and avoid water sports like swimming.
I hope this helps.
