Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Infection of the ear can affect the external ear only (otitis external) but can also reach the middle ear (otitis media). Frequently, if the ear infection makes your ears discharge a lot of fluid, it means that this infection occurs in your middle ear. In the middle ear there are the hearing bones which are separated from the outer ear by the eardrum.
Middle ear infections most often occur due to the spread of infections from the respiratory tract (can be from the nose, sinuses, or throat) that are not treated properly. Initially, people with otitis media will feel pain in their ears, feel full, hearing is slightly disturbed, and even fever, jaw pain, nausea, and many other complaints can also appear. If not treated immediately, an infection in the middle ear can cause the eardrum to tear, until finally inflammation of fluid that was previously accumulated in the middle ear comes out. The tearing of the eardrum can obviously be very disruptive to sound conduction, causing hearing to be significantly reduced. This condition is most likely that you are experiencing right now.
It may also be that your current hearing loss is due to a buildup of earwax, a nervous breakdown around the ear, excessive noise exposure, or many other possibilities. Not just any ear drops can overcome this complaint. In fact, improper use of drops can make your complaints worse. Therefore, you should not use drugs before checking with a doctor.
Check with your doctor first or an ENT specialist doctor so that your condition can be treated properly. At this time, you can just focus on keeping your ears clean and not getting in any foreign substances (including water, cotton buds, etc.). Avoid carelessly poking around your ears, and also avoid excessive exposure to noise around your ears.
Hope this helps ...
