Suggest remedy for chronic ear infections

my16 yr old niece has had chronic ear infections, 2 sets of tubes, and for the past year or two, a skin like substance that grows on the eardrum which the PA for the ENT removes every week or two. The ENT doctor told her yesterday that she has kereotis and requires surgery. We are trying to find out more info on this disorder..

Hello,

It may be due to chronic suppurative otitis media. For that you may require discharge culture sensitivity after ENT consultation. For pain you can take tablet Acetaminophen. You may require broad spectrum antibiotics after ENT consultation as culture report. Avoid ear piercing. Maintain proper hygiene.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shyam Kale
