The Hole In The Outer Ear Is Itchy And The Upper Fluid Comes Out When Throbbing?
Hello doctor? I want to ask about the preakuler fistula. I have had ear holes in the upper part since I was a child and that was in both my ears. thank god no impact whatsoever. Only the left often emits an unpleasant odor. Because I pushed it out like pus. Has no effect on ears (no redness, swelling, etc.). Only the one who is disturbing smells only even then when it feels throbbing in the hole (because each throbbing or itching feels prengen in scratching and after that smells the liquid). What should I do? Because I have never checked it. Because currently junior does not interfere with daily activities.
Preauricular fistula is a condition in which abnormal channels are formed between the inner ear and the outside. This is a congenital disorder. Preaurkilar fistulas do not always cause symptoms. However, the fistula is prone to infection, and if there is an infection can cause pain and discharge pus or fluid.
So from your condition, if indeed you have experienced the fistula for a long time and have not been treated, then you should check yourself directly to the ENT specialist, so that the doctor can examine your condition directly. The occurrence of infection in the fistula that can continue to cause the spread of infection to other parts, including infections of the central nervous system.
Therefore, check your condition directly to the doctor. Medical procedures such as the closure of the fistula may be needed.
