Slimy substance in ears, irritation, itchiness, ear pain. Pain management?
hello doctor, for the past 2 years i have had a slime like substance in my ears that was never there befor. it is causing irritation in my ear as my ear becomes itchy because of it. also if i sleep on one side for too long i get an earache. i have seen a doctor and she said there was no wax buildup. I have no idea what to do and it is becoming unbearable
I think your disease is confined to external ear. Wax is a cause of your symptoms though it has been excluded by your doc. Fungal external otitis media is another cause which may lead to same symptoms. Fo that -
1. you need to consult your doctors,
2. ask him to clean your ear canal,
3. maintain local hygiene,
4. use a topical antifungal solution,
5. bathe in clear water,
6. use antihistaminics if itching is unbearable.
I think you will be helpful with this advice.
