The Shape Of The Right And Left Ear Is Different?
I want to ask. My child’s ears are shaped differently from the left, smaller size u0026amp; the upper half does not cover the ear hole. How is the solution ?? Thank you
Thank you for the question.
The shape and size of the ear are often the exact same between the right and left sides. As long as the difference in shape and size of the ear is not too noticeable, nor does it interfere with its function, often this condition is harmless. However, it is different if the difference is very far away or to the point of causing children to experience hearing loss. If this is the case, your child's chances are that they occur due to genetic disorders, infection in pregnancy, side effects of certain drugs during pregnancy (such as isotretinoin), malnutrition during pregnancy, and so on. Perhaps, these factors also make your child's ears small and one-sided.
The solution that we can offer you right now is, check your child directly to the doctor, pediatrician, or ENT specialist. That way, the doctor can evaluate whether the condition is still considered reasonable, or whether it needs special treatment so as not to interfere. If you need to make corrections, maybe the doctor will coordinate with a plastic surgeon to perform surgery on your child's ears. If this condition occurs accompanied by hearing loss, the use of hearing aids can also be recommended by the doctor.
Hope this helps ...
