Highlighting internal and external ear injuries
Posted on Aug 27, 2015
Ears are one of the most sensitive pats in a human body and any injury to it should not be taken lightly and must be dealt with care and medication. Proper care and timely medication is imperative as a little delay in dealing with it can lead to serious health problems and even permanent deafness. The most common injuries related to ears include building up of wax in the internal ear, infection caused due to entry of some liquids like water and pimples. Infection caused due to water entering into the ear is common in case of swimmers and they are more prone to ear related disease.

Internal Ear Injury

Such type of wounds is generally caused via placing of some objects into the ear canal. Because of it the eardrum gets ruptured and results in abrupt decline in hearing ability and uncontrollable pain. The damage to the eardrum resulting in its rupture can also be caused from a slap particularly by the palm or due to rapid sudden changes in pressure caused while flying on higher altitudes or diving deep into the sea.

Treating Internal Wounds: If your eardrum gets ruptured, you need not worry as it has a tendency to heal naturally without any specific treatment. If your eardrum is ruptured because a foreign body has entered into it or if it has ruptured because of coming in direct contact with highly contaminated water, you’ll require oral antibiotics. These medicines will help in reducing the likelihood of having bacterial infection. It is highly recommended by ENT specialists that the ear canal should always be kept free from water, oils and ear drops. If in case you have a wound that is not healing properly even after taking some antibiotics, you should immediately consult an ENT specialist in order to prevent aggravating you wound.

External Ear Injury

Such type of wound or damage can take the form of lacerations or wound to blunt soft tissues. To prevent laceration, performing surgical repairs like stitches will often be required. This will result in balancing the cosmetic appearance and to an extent reduce the risk of the wound getting aggravated. Blunt injuries caused to the ear by slap, punch or an accident may even result in noticeable swelling around it.

Treating External Wounds: Patients dealing with large hematomas will be requiring incision and drainage for avoiding permanent disfigurement. If in case you have an external damage, by applying cold packs and compressive dressing on the ear as early as possible will result in eliminating the problem quickly. For treating abrasions, you’ll require the wound to be treated with gentle cleansing with the help of an antibacterial soap. After properly cleaning the wound, apply an antibiotic ointment. In case the wound has broken your skin, you might even require a tetanus injection. If you have a severe wound, consult an ENT specialist. For controlling the pain you can take aspirin, acetaminophen or an anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen.
