WELCOME T HCM.
FIRST THING TO TELL, NEVER PUT HYDROGEN PEROXIDE IN EARS, ITS A VERY DANGEROUS PRACTICE. SECOND THING, IT SEEMS THE FLU HE SUFFERED HAS AFFECTED HIS EARS CAUSING FLUID ACCUMULATION BEHIND HIS EAR DRUMS. U NEED TO TAKE HIM TO AN ENT EXPERT FORCLINICAL EXAMINATION AND FURTHER MANAGEMENT. TILL THEN ASKHIM TO START TAKING STEAM INHALATION. HE WILL FEEL BETTER.
