Dr. Amol Joshi – Hi, thank you so much.
Dr. Amol Joshi – Otitis, which is actually an infection of the ear, there can be many reasons for swelling. Understand that if there is a fungal infection in the ear, then it is also a type of Otitis. There are also cases of Otitis in which there is no infection, but theis be swelling or water accumulation in the ear. As I said, there are many reasons, and the main reasons can be two. You put something in the ear from outside; it got water while bathing; water did not go while swimming; or you put something from outside. The second one happens: you have a cold or an infection.
Now that the first symptom remains, swelling starts coming. The pen starts in the eardrum. It is difficult in cold weather because there are more chances of ear pain. In the beginning, it will come like thin water, then slowly it starts to turn yellow. Gradually, there is difficulty hearing as well.
Dr. Amol Joshi – Here, this thing is common among children; it may be more common among adults. It’s simple reason is that there is a connection inside to connect the nose and ear. If children have a little cold, even a little infection, then it can become the cause of ear pain. This tendency is not so prevalent in adults. Suppose 10 people have gotten a cold. So, hardly a person will have an ear problem. This figure can be up to 4-5 in children, so it is common in children. And there is a reason that it is common in children, just as you must have heard about tonsils in children; similarly, there is another tonsil behind the nose in the throat. If the tonsils are large in children, then it can cause ear infections.
Dr. Amol Joshi – Correct. Sometimes they become painful, even for very simple reasons. If there is a little wax. That’s pretty hard. When the child put something in the ear, it entered inside. Even that becomes a pain.
One problem in the ear is that the oil is very light in serious diseases of the ear.
There is a need to understand that the whole brain is very close to your ear; there is brain behind the ear as well, and there is brain in the upper part as well. That is why, if a child complains of pain for more than 2 – 3 days, even if the pain is not very sharp, or mild, you must pay attention to it.
Dr. Amol Joshi – In general, the majority of the treatment for this Otitis is medical, so what is included in the medical treatment? If someone has a fungal infection, there are some different anti-fungal drops for that. Suppose someone has got an infection and he keeps on putting drops, then the ear will get worse. There is a small procedure for that. Sometimes, if you take medicines for three to four weeks, you take a course of antibiotics, etc. for three weeks, but still, if it is not going. So it becomes a surgical case.
Imagine that there is a hole in someone’s curtain. The role of surgical treatment comes into play here. If you have a problem even after two to three weeks, then simple tests are done. An endoscopy is done. Good. So, if we actually see all these tests, they are very cheap but very useful. You can diagnose ear diseases very well, so instead of ignoring them, it is better to go to an ear surgeon near you. Show them your ears. If they recommend some tests, do them and get the treatment done.
Dr. Amol Joshi – Often, when people want to clean their ears, they clean them with whatever comes to hand. Understand one thing: have you ever had water in your ear? While swimming and bathing, do not scrub it too rough. People who use earphones a lot must get the audiometry test done once a year. That’s why there are only two things: one, don’t put anything external, and two, the use of the ear is very important. There is a lot of use of the telephone. They should do simple audiometry once a year to get an idea of your hearing.
Dr. Amol Joshi – Cleaning is not necessary; God has made such a mechanism that the dirt in the ear comes out automatically; we feel it, and it comes out with the finger. There are only 5% or 10% of people who get too much wax. They only have to go to the doctor to get it cleaned in a year or two.
Dr. Amol Joshi – If someone got too much wax. He cannot hear with that ear. We take out all the dirt. It is a short OPD procedure of 20–25 minutes.
Dr. Amol Joshi – A simple tip is to not use a sensing mobile or Bluetooth.
