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.

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.
