liquid discharge

Liquid discharge from the ear canal can occur due to various reasons. The most common is the leakage from the middle part of the ear, behind the eardrum. This is where the mucous membrane is placed.

Most of the time, our ears discharge earwax, oily substance that our bodies produce to protect the ear. The job of the wax is to make sure that bacteria, dust, and other foreign bodies don’t get into the ear. However, several conditions, such as a ruptured eardrum, can cause fluids to drain from the ear. It’s relatively easy to figure out whether you have a ruptured eardrum; if it hurts and you have a discharge, you probably have.

You can relieve the pain of a rupture by placing heat and by taking pain relievers. A warm and dry compress on your ear few times a day can help. Do not blow your nose, only when absolutely necessary since pressure from this act can cause more damage to the ear.

    Usually, the ear begins to drain once the pain goes away. At this point, the eardrum is ruptured. Watery, bloody, or pus-filled fluids may drain from the affected ear. A rupture that results from a middle ear infection usually causes bleeding. I have pleased to read the entirety of the post mentioned above in detail. Thanks and keep up the great work!

    Most of the time the fluid leaking out of an ear is ear wax. But sometimes ear drainage can be caused by a ruptured eardrum. A ruptured eardrum can result in hearing loss and can also make your middle ear vulnerable to infections or injury. A ruptured eardrum usually heals within a few weeks without treatment. Sometimes, however, a ruptured eardrum requires a procedure or surgical repair to heal.
