Patient's Query

Hello doctor.

I am experiencing water pouring out of my ear. I am hearing fewer things. This has been going on for the last two days. I went to the doctor a long time ago, and they gave me some drops that lasted at least a couple of years. It was an antibiotic drop and a spray to wash it away that I needed.

Please help


Welcome to icliniq.com.

It might be a perforation in the drum. To assist you, I require certain responses. Are your ear secretions watery or dense? Do the secretions have a foul odor? You might begin by using Ciprocin (fluconazole) ear drops. Please close your lips and nose before attempting to blow. Is there air flowing out of your ear? Revert with the answer to assist further.

Thank you and take care.


Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Thank you so much for your response. The secretions are not very thick. and does not have that unpleasant odor. It has a golden hue. I attempted to blow but it was unsuccessful. Is a prescription required to obtain Ciprocin?


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

It is simple to obtain the medication without a prescription. The golden yellow color might indicate that you have a lot of wax in your ear. I propose going to a clinic to get this wax removed from your ear. I prefer suction since ear cleaning is contraindicated in cases of eardrum rupture. Until suction, place a dry, large piece of cotton in your ear at night and remove it when you wake up. This cotton piece can suck ear secretions during the night.

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