Tips and causes of ear ache-
I’m an ENT specialist. I served in the army for 15 years, following which I am now in private practice in Vasant Vihar, South Delhi. Today, we will discuss about children having pain in the ear.
One of the commonest reason for which the parents take their child to a doctor is for an earache. Earache’s in children is most commonly caused because of cold that has gone out for some time, because in this case fluid or material gets in the middle ear of the children causes pressure upon the eardrum or tympanic membrane and causes pain. Sometimes pain may be because of some infection related to swimming as in a swimmers ear or wax or an external ear infection.
The commonest treatment for this is to start the child on some kind of an anti-histamine micro-lite as well as some nasal spray or drops so that the congestion due to blockage caused by infection should be open up.
Most of the time children will wake up in the night 3 or 4 o clock crying with pain if they have had a cold for some time a pain in the ear is usually relieved by this crying. In these instances, it is better to give the child a simple pain killer or a paracetamol and instil some nasal drops because that will help the child. Try to go to the doctor so that the doctor can determine the cause of the pain and star treatment. I would like to tell you that most often antibiotics are not necessary in these cases but a proper ENT consultation is required so that the child can be diagnosed properly.
Our clinic treats an ear infection in people very very frequently. I will request you to call me or send me a message, in case you have a query otherwise you can get in touch with my clinic staff they will give you an appointment.
Cotton swabs or cotton buds, are commonly used in our daily lifestyle. Many people use it for various purposes, such as make-up, bacterial culture, and most commonly for extracting wax and debris from the ear. Even though they are sometimes handy in our busy schedule, they usually cause much more harm than benefits.
How are they misused?
Cotton buds are toothpick like pieces made of wood, plastic, or rolled paper, which have cotton stuck at both ends with a roundish edge. It came into existence during the 1920s for a safe purpose of ear cleaning by Leo Gerstenzang, when he saw his wife cleaning their baby’s ear with a toothpick. And, til now they are used by the general population for ear cleaning, but these hardly remove the outer debris which is stuck near the outer edges. Impressing it inside the ear canal only does further damage, by forcing the inner wax further inside. Sometimes extensive force also causes damage to the ear drums.
How does it cause the damage?
Applying a tool like the cotton bud inside the ear with hands usually creates a force that impresses upon the eardrum, also accumulating the surrounding earwax to that area, resulting in impaction of the wax. The force applied most often, if not always, causes a damage to the ear drums, which might cause severe pain, also leading to leakage, causing improper balance, deafness, and certain similar abnormalities.
Although we are worried about cleaning our ears, it doesn’t really require our notice, since our usual showers allow an adequate quantity of water to enter the ears and clean the accumulated debris automatically. The structure, in which our ear canal is designed, is usually naturally assisting in cleaning up the unusual wax around the ear.
If there is an uncontrollable build up of earwax that is not cleaned off normally, you can always consult an ENT or any general physician and get it cleaned under medical surveillance, which is best advised.
Doctors and medical practitioners all around the world have been trying to spread the message of preventing the use of cotton buds for ear cleaning. It is important that the message reach the greater part of the population. Spread it to your family, your closest friends, their friends, and as further, you can reach!
