509 – Cotton Bud Q tip Extracted from Heavily Inflamed Ear
#Aromatherapy #Asthma #Dental #Diseases #DrugAbuse
Ear wax removal is necessary when ear wax build up becomes impacted. Symptoms causes by earwax blockage include: earache (otalgia), conductive hearing loss, blocked ear, vertigo, tinnitus, itchiness and irritation, occlusion etc.
The client attended with a cotton bud q-tip stuck against his eardrum. He suffers from Otitis Externa and was using the cotton bud q-tip in an attempt to relieve the itchiness and irritation he was experiencing.
The ear canal was heavily inflamed and it was not possible to insert the standard 2mm diameter Zoellner suction probe. I therefore attached a Fine End Gauge 18. I managed to extracted the cotton bud enough to then use crocodile forceps to extracted the cotton bud.
I have recommended the client to visit his GP for prescribed treatment of his Otitis Externa but in the meanwhile to obtain some EarCalm spray.
