Patient's Query

Dear doctor,

I am a 19 year old male. Some type of viscous liquid comes out of my ears and when it dries up, it hardens. Please help me.

Answered by Dr. Suneetha B S

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Viscous fluid coming out of ears indicates a middle ear infection. It has to be attended to immediately to avoid damage to the ear.

I request you to meet an ENT specialist at the earliest to prevent further damage.

In the meantime, you can take tablet Levocetirizine 10 mg twice a day to reduce the secretions and the inflammation.

For further queries consult an ENT otolaryngologist online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/ENT-Otolaryngologist

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