The Ears Of Children Aged 5 Years Come Out Clear Liquid With A Little Blotch Of Blood?
Good afternoon, I want to ask my niece about 5 years old, her ears often come out clear liquid, it’s been more than a week, now it starts like there’s a little blood stain, has been taken by a doctor but it’s still like that … why huh? Please help, thank you
Thank you for the question.
Clear fluid comes out with a patch of blood from the ear most often indicating otitis externa, which is inflammation of the external ear. This condition, can occur due to various factors, such as foreign body entry, accumulation of earwax, excessive ear-digging habits, as well as moist ear conditions to facilitate infection in the ear canal. Not only abnormal discharge, otitis externa can also make sufferers feel pain, the ear canal swells, hearing loss, ear buzzing, even fever and chills in more severe cases.
In addition to otitis externa, your child's condition may also be triggered by other factors, such as eardrum tears, otitis media, drug side effects, allergies or irritation around the ears, and so on.
The good, if indeed you have checked your child to the doctor, but the complaint does not also improve, try to check it back to the doctor or ENT specialist. Some medications, ear irrigation, cerumen extraction, or other therapeutic modalities may be done by a doctor in order to deal with your child's complaints. At home, you can do the following tips first:
Clean the liquid that comes out of the child's ear using a sanitary gauze or tissue
Do not pry the child's ears
Do not also put anything into a child's ear without doctor's advice, including water, cotton buds, and certain medications
Keep the child's ears always dry and do not enter dangerous foreign objects
Do not carelessly give children medicine
Hope this helps ...
