Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a 29 year old male. I have tinnitus for the last two weeks. I am taking tablets, but there is no improvement. I do not know the cause. The doctor, whom I visited, said that my nose hole is rooted in such a way that my ear gets infection like that. Also, my ear has pus inside. I think my tinnitus is due to masturbation. I do masturbate daily around two to three times a day and sometime more than that too. I used to do it in the sleeping position with the left side down. I could feel heat in my left ear when I masturbate. Initially, I did not think it as a big issue, but I am worried now. A year ago, I did over masturbation one night and the next day my left ear got infected. But, there is no hearing loss or tinnitus that time and that infection went off. Now, I am having pus and a ringing sound in my left ear. Also, I feel only some 50% hearing in my left ear. Is this temporary or permanent? Will my left ear recover completely?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. Here, I would like to say that masturbation is not related to your ear problem. Probably, you are having otorrhea (ear discharge) with hearing loss and tinnitus. You are advised to take ear drop containing antibiotic, antifungal and steroids along with decongestants. Probably, you will get relief. If the above treatment does not solve your problem, then ask your ENT doctor for a thorough examination of ears and investigations to pinpoint your diagnosis for treatment.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
