Will the puss coming out of my ear harm the foetus in my womb ?

Im a 15 year old female 21 weeks pregnant and my ear has a small cut inside my stretched ear. Its really swollen and builds up hardened yellow puss and it throbs whenever i feel off the puss. Will this harm the fetus and what should i do?

It is unlikely that the infection in your ear will harm your fetus, but infection is the number one cause of pre-term labor. If there is an infection in your body and it gets into your bloodstream, it could end up infecting the baby or causing a more serious infection within yourself. Better to be safe than sorry. I would get it checked out and treated.

welcome to healthcaremagic,


for this condition, take a course of antibiotic like levoflox 500 mg once a day , along with supportive treatment.

it will definately not cause any harm to ur foetus, but it is always better to overcome from any acute infection.
