Yellow Stools Accompanied By Earache In Children Aged 3 Years?
In the afternoon, my child had right ear pain, and inside there was a kind of yellow pus-like dirt, why is that?
Thank you for the question.
Ear wax is naturally yellowish brown, does not come out too much, especially to accumulate in the ear. If you find yellowish-colored earwax that has accumulated inside the child's ear, then this condition may indicate that the ear has an infection in the external ear (otitis externa), it could be due to bacteria, fungi, or other microorganisms. This infection eventually triggers excessive earwax production, pain, and various other signs of inflammation in the ear, such as swelling, redness, buzzing ears, hearing loss, fever, chills, pain and stiffness of the jaw, and so on.
In addition to ear infections, your child's complaints may also occur due to other factors, such as foreign body insertion, ear ear tearing, otitis media, fistula, and so on. Conditions like this should not be left too long. In children, infection of the ear is very susceptible to spread to other distant organs, including the brain and the covering membrane, so it is fatal risk. Immediately consult your child to the doctor, ENT doctor, or pediatrician so that further treatment can be done. Usually, the doctor will first remove dirt in the child's ear with special procedures (for example, drops of drugs, aspirated, and so on), to be able to explore the child's ear in more depth. After that, several types of drugs can be prescribed, or maybe also carried out other therapeutic modalities, such as surgery.
In the meantime, the best thing to do is:
Take care that the child's ears don't get in water, insects, cotton buds, cotton, etc. Don't poke a child's ear with anything take a break Do not get children to drink using a pacifier, especially while lying down Hopefully it helps yes ..
