What Is The Remedy For Echo Ears?
good afternoon, I am a mother with 1 toddler. Last week my ear was punctured by a cotton bud, I couldn’t hear it before I finally bled. I went to ENT but was only given gauze and given red medicine for my ears, and today is the schedule for control. the problem is the ENT doctor is on leave, while my ears still feel echoing when I speak so I have difficulty hearing voices other than mine. what medicine does my doctor think I should buy for my ear? thank you

Based on your exposure, your ear echo can be caused by:
Perforated eardrum (perforation of the tympanic membrane). This can be caused by the cotton swab going too deep into the ear as you are told
Inflammation of the middle ear (otitis media): this inflammation can be triggered by a perforation of the eardrum which causes germs to enter the middle ear space. Apart from echoing, in this case the ear feels painful and may be accompanied by discharge.
Inflammation of the outer ear (otitis externa): in your case, it can be triggered by an injury from a cotton swab
Foreign objects in the ear: for example due to a cotton swab left behind
In order to ascertain the cause of your complaint, it is not only possible to describe the complaint but must be accompanied by a direct physical examination of your ear. If the ENT doctor checks the due date of the day off, you can check with another ENT doctor, or if you are on holiday you can also check with a general practitioner in the ER who is not possible to take a day off (24 hours). If necessary, the general practitioner will consult an ENT doctor by telephone so that you do not worry about not being maximally checked.
Things you should do to improve the condition and maintain ear health:
Avoid picking your ears with your fingers or a cotton swab to prevent further damage
Prevent the ear from getting in water or foreign objects
Avoid using earphones for too long
Avoid listening to something at a loud volume
Immediately treat the symptoms of a cold cough if any because if not treated can trigger inflammation of the middle ear.
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
