Can a fever blister go to the inner ear or ear if u have one on lip..

Can a fever blister go to the inner ear or ear if u have one on lip..

Usually not: If one tends to get fever blisters (oral herpes lesions) on her lips, and has had that happen more than once, then she already has antibodies circulating in her body (against that virus). These antibodies should prevent her from getting NEW infections (new locations) of the same herpes strain. However, one could have cold sores from Herpes 1, and then get new lesions at other places from Herpes 2. ...Read more

I have autoimmune inner ear disease and just finished a pack of steroids two days ago. Blood blister inside cheek just appeared tonight. Panic?

Don't panic: A collection of blood under the lining of the mouth is usually from trauma, like biting. It would not be an expected side effect of prednisone, but steroids can impair wound healing, so that might explain it. If concerned, have it checked out in the next few days. ...Read more

Is it safe to take alcohol to clear water from inner ear?

Middle ear?: It is not the inner ear that you are describing. And do you mean drinking alcohol or putting alcohol in the ear canal. Because your statement is rather non-specific, I am not sure I know what you mean. If you are saying does drinking alcohol cause a change in inner ear volume or pressure, I would say no. Also I do not know how much alcohol you consume. I think the brain would be more involved. ...Read more

What is it like to have an operation to remove infection from their inner ear?

Inner ear infection: Hello. I think that you may be confusing a middle ear infection with an inner ear infection. Operating on ears for infection has become a rare necessity because of the many antibiotics and non surgical treatments we now have. Operating on the inner ear will sacrifice hearing and may cause a permanent balance disability. Check with your surgeon and maybe get a second opinion. Good luck ...Read more

You really need to see an ear specialist to examine your ears and do a hearing test. ...Read more

Can fluid get in inner ears like it can in middle ear? If so, how does dr diagnose inner ear fluid.

Can fluid get in inner ears like it can in middle ear? If so, how does dr diagnose inner ear fluid.

Middle vs inner?: Not sure what you mean here. The ear canal is open to the outside, so every time you bath, shower, swim, are in the rain, etc, fluid can enter the ear canal. The tympanic membrane[tm]) ear drum, stops any fluid from getting into the inner ear (which some people may call the middle ear). Using an otoscope, a dr. Can tell with reasonable certainty if "fluid" is behind the tm, and decide any tx needs. ...Read more

Unusual for it to last for longer than a few days, but certainly could recur, but a month of persistent symptoms is atypical and would wonder about something else.
