Hello and welcome to HCM,
The history given by you is suggestive of acute serous otitis
ASOM is inflammation of the middle ear cavity. A perforation in the ear drum has occurred due to ASOM
It is caused by bacteria and causes accumulation of pus and pain.
If you are having the same problem again, you need to visit an ENT specialist
for culture of pus.
Culture will isolate the organism causing the infection.
Culture sensitivity of the pus will help to prescribe relevant antibiotics.
Since, the problem is recurrent, proper toileting of the middle ear cavity and insertion of tube may be required. The tube keeps the middle ear cavity aerated and drains any accumulation of pus or discharge.
You need to discuss it with your ENT specialist.
Thanks and take care.
Dr Shailja P Wahal
