The Ear Hurts Due To The Introduction Of Water.?
Hello, not too long ago my ears got water in the bath, but the water wouldn’t come out for days, because the water wouldn’t come out my ears became very sick, what medicine is suitable for my complaint huh?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, water that enters the ear canal must be removed immediately. The longer the water stays in the ear canal, the more likely it is that bacteria will develop in the ear canal and cause an infection in the external ear or called otitis externa. Looking at your history, chances are you are now experiencing otitis externa.
You should immediately check yourself to the ENT doctor. The doctor will prescribe medicines to relieve inflammation that occurs in the ear and also drugs to treat infections. Some things you need to consider for now:
Avoid prying ears with cotton buds, ear scrapers, fingers, or other objects
Do not drop ear drops carelessly without going through an examination from a doctor first
Be careful when you bathe so that the ear does not get in the water again
To help reduce pain, you can compress the outside of your ear with cold compresses, and consume pain relievers such as paracetamol.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
