Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • If you have been having ear discharge for two years, then most probably the ear perforation is a permanent one and you would require a surgery to close it and give you a dry ear.
  • In either case, an examination of ear through an otoscope or microscope is necessary to arrive at exact diagnosis and institute right management for you. I suggest you to get a professional consultation done for a physical evaluation.
  • Meanwhile, you may follow a few suggestions:
  1. Avoid water entry into the ear.
  2. Keep cotton plug while bathing.
  3. Do not put anything into the ear to clean or scratch.
  4. I suggest Paracetamol tablet for pain and tablet Lorfast (Loratadine) to reduce discharge. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
