Hello, Cutyee Ana, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
White discharge in the ears can be caused by several possible causes:
1. Cerumen prop, or accumulation of earwax in the ear canal
2. A foreign object in the ear, for example a cotton swab left in the ear canal
3. Inflammation of the middle ear (Otitis media). This condition is often triggered by an infection of the respiratory tract (eg cough / cold).
4.Fungal infection of the ear (otomycosis)
If the doctor who examined said that there was inflammation in the ear, then several things could trigger the inflammation, for example because there was a history of respiratory tract infections, a history of injury to the ear canal (for example due to inserting a device that could injure the ear), frequent ear moisture, ear hygiene not awake, or the habit of picking your ears.
To clean the ears, it should be done by a doctor with the right ear cleaning tools. Because, cleaning the ears in an improper way can cause the wax to push deeper and increase the chance of earwax buildup. The buildup of earwax can lead to inflammation and blockage of the ear canal.
Take medication from the doctor regularly and do not stop medication without the doctor's knowledge. Try to keep your ears dry and clean. Check the condition of your child according to the doctor's recommendation, or consult if there are complaints such as discharge / blood from the ears, ear itching, pain, ringing, or hearing loss.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
