Not a good idea!: Will not help a mid ear infection-need an oral antibiotic. May cause significant burning in an ear canal (outer ear) infection. Severe burning if you have hole in eardrum with infection. Only ok, mixed with white vinegar, for ear canal drying/cleaning, if no canal inflammation & no eardrum perforation. See an otology/ent md for treatment. ...Read more
Ever since an ear ache i always get water in ear which stays for days even with alcohol treatment . Alcohol treatment also stays in ear for days.Why?
Dont put it in ear: If you are feeling liquid in your ear, it may be a discharge from a middle ear infection with a hole in the eardrum. Do not put alcohol into your ear. It is toxic to tissues, and if you have a perforated eardrum it can cause damage to the delicate structures of the middle ear. See your health care provider and/or an ear, nose and throat specialist. ...Read more
Had a tube put into left ear on 1/27. Have an earache today. Is this normal or should I be worried?
Tube: Should relieve pain and allow for drainage. Have it checked, it may be plugged or blocked in which case you would require ear drops. All the best. ...Read more

Do I have a perforated ear drum? I have had chronic earaches since i was a kid. Lately I have noticed that i cannot hear well out of my left ear, and I do hear the ocean sound. I put some ear drops in ( left over from my last doctor visit), but it hasn't
High : High pressures generated from a valsalva maneuver that you performed could generate the type of sound that you described if you had a perforation. Also, if you tasted your eardrops that could be an indirect sign of perforation as a pathway from your ear canal, through a perforation, down the eustacian tube, and into the back of your throat. If you haven't seen an ent, it may be wise to have this checked, get a hearing test, and discuss options for possible corrective surgery if you have a perforation, or other appropriate tympanomastoid surgery depending on the severity of the problem. ...Read more
Irrigation: The oil may have solidified and is attached to either the ear canal skin or even the ear drum. Try 3% hydrogen peroxide, 4 times a day (dropper full) for a week. If that does not help see an ENT doctor for proper and safe removal by either microscopic removal or simple irrigation of warm water. ...Read more
Hi.my son is 2 ys and 8 mths old. He woke up crying because of an ear ache . Is it safe to put lidosporin drops?if yes after how long and how many?Thx
It would be best: To have a doctor look in the ear. Covering up pain, and potentially introducing liquid into a eardrum that is at risk of rupture may worsen things. If it's possible to have someone look in the ear to look for foreign bodies, insects, perforation of the eardrum or fluid behind the eardrum with the tool doctors use (an otoscope) is the best way to go. Check for fever, and note any other symptoms. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
