What factors aggravates ear infections post grommet falling off with the opening for the grommet still being visible on the eardrum?

What factors aggravates ear infections post grommet falling off with the opening for the grommet still being visible on the eardrum?

The same factors: that promote all ear infections: spread of infection from preceding upper respiratory infection causing fluid build-up behind the ear drum; smaller and more level eustachian tubes in children impairing drainage of inner ear fluid. While tubes are very helpful while they are in place they usually fall out after 6-12 months, the hole heals, and infections may recur. Hope this helps:) ...Read more

Can semen roll down from the stomach and into the vulva, and travel through the vaginal canal and enter the cervix during a period and w/ tampon in?

Can semen roll down from the stomach and into the vulva, and travel through the vaginal canal and enter the cervix during a period and w/ tampon in?

Gravity: No. Semen does not roll upwards. It also does not easily enter the vaginal canal in this scenario as you have now been told more than one dozen times. But, the bigger picture is that it does not in any way matter. The female in this scenario cannot get pregnant on the first day of a period. There is no egg there. ...Read more

Can a fan a few feet from you to the left blowing air into your left ear cause ear damage? (On lowest setting, breeze)

Can a fan a few feet from you to the left blowing air into your left ear cause ear damage?

(On lowest setting, breeze)

Not likely: Unless your fan is incredibly noisy, it's unlikely that the fan generates enough decibels to contribute to hearing loss. The air current itself, shouldn't create any danger to your ear, unless your fan is incredibly dirty and blowing around dangerous material/pathogens - and this wouldn't be an issue with the fan as so much the hygiene of the environment the fan is in. ...Read more

Pain in my left ear,wax accumulates and gets hard and dark in the opening of the ear canal,cannot even remove it easily,but doesn’t fall from that ear?

Use Debrox or Murine: Try using a few drops of a wax (cerumen) softening agent. These are available OTC. Follow the manufacturer instructions. I caution against using Q-tips. If the problem persists, you may want to have the ear checked & an ear lavage done by your doctor. ...Read more
