Why Does My Ear Suddenly Runny For 3 Days And Have A Headache?
Good night, I want to ask, my ears suddenly runny This is already the 3rd day, which I feel like there is something inside and feels a lot of pain that makes my head dizzy. I wonder why? I want to see a doctor, but I’m afraid if I have to get surgery later. Please help answer
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Watery ears, can occur due to several possibilities, the first can be because there is indeed fluid entering, for example when bathing or swimming, it could also be due to an infection both in the external ear (between the ear canal to the eardrum) or in the middle ear (the cavity is reversed eardrum that is connected to the oral cavity.
The infection itself can be caused by many things, it could be due to the bite of a small insect that enters the ear canal, it can be due to the moist condition of the ear because there is often fluid going in and out, it can be an infection that rises because it starts from a nasal infection first, and others so. It is impossible to know this without first doing a direct inspection.
So we suggest, you should still check yourself to the ENT doctor so that you can see the condition in your ear canal through special tools. As for your concerns about surgery, conditions like this are usually not handling the operation. Even if surgery, the doctor does not have the slightest right to force treatment on you. You can refuse and choose treatments that are more comfortable for you, for example ear drops or oral medication if it can be treated that way. You even have the right to find another ENT doctor if you feel unsure. But at least, the examination has been done first, because there is not much that can be done if the conditions are still unclear.
Meanwhile, avoid swimming and be more careful when bathing so that no liquid gets into the ears. To reduce dizziness, you can take over-the-counter painkillers by reading the rules of use listed, taking regular breaks, and avoiding stress. So, hopefully answering your question.
