The Ears Of Babies Aged 4 Months Always Come Out Yellow Fluid?
Tonight, my doctor. My mama Fatih. I want to ask me why I have a 4-month-old baby.
Good morning Fatih, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Fluid discharge from a child's ear can mean several things, namely an infection both in the ear canal and from the middle ear which is located behind the eardrum, and trauma or injury to the ear when cleaning the ears using a cotton bud and pushing it too deep.
If there is fluid coming out, all you can do is compress the side of the ear with a warm compress. Make sure that you squeeze enough so that no liquid from the towel actually goes into the ear canal. After that, try to see an ENT doctor to look into the ear canal using a special tool, especially if the discharge is accompanied by other complaints, such as fussy babies, fever, redness of the ears and so forth. Also, be careful when bathing the baby, making sure it is not tilted so that it makes it easy for water to enter the ear canal. So, hopefully answering your question.
