I have csom, read for details.
I have csom. Doctor gave me antiobiotic that i have to finish in 1 week. I finished it and went back to the doctor to get checked some mord. No discharge occured during the 1 week period. Then he told me to go home coz it will heal on its own, but to come back if the discharge persists within 2 weeks. 2 weeks laters, no discharge nor discomfort.. Slight hearing loss as usual but no discharge so i didnt come back. But now that im entering the 3rd week, my ear start draining, its not as bad as it used to be but.. A discharge nonetheless. Hmmm and a small bump on my earlobe. Also had a ringing in my ear but it went away asap. Should i go checked up? coz idk, it could be just nothing..coz a few days before i took a shower and was careless, i guess water got into the affected ear(im supposed to keep it dry)...then the discharge happened. Is it nothing or should i go to the doc.. I wnna make sure its something to worry abt bcs its a hassel to commute and I don't wanna do it for nothing.

Hi U are diagnosed of csom you have decreased hearing also,plus you have this discharge after 3mths of last antibiotic therapy,also you are saying that there was some water which went in your ear. This all suggest the problem is chronic and recurrent. While M not aware of the size of perforation in your ear drum but with decreased hearing I would suggest you to seek  a second opinion from an ent specialist.so do visit an ent specialist for second opinion.
