Prisha has been through a lot last one week. After being diagnosed with external otitis, she started off with antibiotics for 5 days.There was a lot of pain where she would shout and my whole body would cramp up feeling her pain.After 2 doses of the medicines, that night I got a shock of my life when I reached out to clean her ear. Her ear canal was totally closed with big boil as it is and so cleaning it was almost impossible.There was a lot of blood flowing. I just stopped breathing at that moment. I called up her doctor. Fortunately , after a couple of calls , he finally picked up my phone. After hearing my panicked voice, he asked me to just clean the blood and take the ointment T-bact and put some on cotton wool and put into her ear. The whole night I was a bit tensed. Since then , she has been getting better. Every night since then , she has been draining out yellow fluid stained with blood on the pillow at night.It is a lot of relief and at the same time I am amazed at the extent of her infection.Today I visited the Doc. On examination, he told me that her ear drum had ruptured because of the severe infection and it had started to heal.He showed me both the ear drums to see the difference.He explained the whole science behind it and asked me to continue the anti biotics for 5 days more along with some ear drops.Her huge swelling of the tragus of the left ear has reduced to a great extent.The boil that completely closed the canal entrance has also reduced. Now cleaning the ear is easier. I hope this ear infection goes away for good. We have had enough of this this ear.
