How difficult is it to make incision on retracted eardrum for t-tubes?Howfix retracted ear drum? Hold nose and blow to relieve pressure?
Retracted TM: Hello, a retracted eardrum can be a challange to treat both medically and surgically. Steroids, nasal sprays, air insufflation may all help to equalize the pressure across the tympanic membrane but in patients who fail this therapy may require tube placement. A t-tube will stay in the tm longer than most other tubes and fix the problem. The incision in the right hands shouldn't be a problem. ...Read more

Looked in baby's ear and ear drum is red on one ear he is teething and runny nose could it b ear infection or pressure?4 weeks ago on antibiotics
Red doesn't diagnose: Red is but one thing we look at when visualizing an ear drum. Red alone does not an ear infection make.

Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

It is more traditional to use in small kids, but might help an adult.A consult with an ENT can help you decide ...Read more
