White Stools On The Ears Of Children?
Afternoon, I have a 2-year-old child, I was once affected by inflammation of the ear membranes because of a prolonged flu so that it drains fluids from the ear holes, thank God it’s healed after being taken to the ENT. now how come a lot of dirt in my son’s ear, before I have also experienced, given drops of “Decusate sodium “
Fungal infections of the ear or otomycosis can range from the outer ear to the eardrum. Otomycosis is most often caused by fungal infections of Candida or Aspergillus. Activities such as swimming or surfing can make it easier for yeast infections in the ear. Other risk factors that can increase the risk of fungal infections in the ear are weak immune system, trauma to the ear, and skin disorders in the ear (atopic eczema).
Symptoms of otomycosis include:
Red on the ear skin
Swelling in the ear
The skin is easy to peel
Grayish white liquid comes out of the ear hole
To determine the presence of fungal infections in the ear, a physical examination by a doctor is required. The discharge you are referring to in your child's ear can be just ordinary ear wax, not necessarily an ear fungus infection. Drops containing decusate sodium, are used to soften hard or clogged earwax so that it is easily removed. Normal ear has a mechanism to remove ear wax and ear wax in a certain amount is also needed as a defense mechanism of the ear canal.
If the examination turns out to have otomycosis, then the treatment given is antifungal ear drops. Patients are advised to avoid getting water into the ear hole. Automocotic patients who are not treated properly can cause complications of ear bone infection, ruptured eardrum, hearing loss. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
