So had the flu 3 days ago and i had what appeared to be an ear infection, my ear didnt hurt that much but it felt like there was alot of pressure built up. I went to blow my nose and i hear pop and blood began to run down my ear… went to the hospital and i was told i have a perforated ear drum.
I was given antibiotics and neomycin ear drops.
its been 3 days and my ear kind still feels the same and i noticed theres alot of kind dry blood, its more blood clots that aren’t completely dry, i thought it might be from the drops but im not sure anymore.
My ear feels really dirty because of the blood and the drops and im worried this will impact the healing process.
I was thinking of using a Qtip to clean my ears slightly but im not sure thats the right thing to do.
I know its only been 3 days but just dosent feel like its healing, i would of though the hole would of been closed up by now.
any advice ? how fast should i see my specialist ?
